A comment on the colour-colour diagrams of Low Mass X-ray Binaries

Abstract

Disc accreting neutron stars come in two distinct varieties, atolls and Z sources, named after their differently shaped tracks on a colour-colour diagram as the source luminosity changes. Here we present analysis of three transient atoll sources showing that there is an additional branch in the colour-colour diagram of atoll sources which appears at very… (More)
