Context. The CCO (central compact object) candidate in the center of the supernova remnant shell HESS J1731−347 / G353.6−0.7 shows no pulsations and exhibits a blackbody-like X-ray spectrum. If the absence of pulsations is interpreted as eviden ce for the emitting surface area being the entire neutron star surface , the assumption of the measured flux being due to a blackbody e mission translates into a source distance that is inconsistent with current estimates of the remnant’s distance.

The neutron star in HESS J1731−347: Central compact objects as laboratories to study the equation of state of superdense matter
Context: Central Compact Objects (CCOs) in supernova remnants are isolated thermally emitting neutron stars (NSs). They are most probably characterized by a magnetic field strength that is roughly
XMM-Newton observations of the non-thermal supernova remnant HESS J1731-347 (G353.6-0.7)
We report on the analysis of XMM-Newton observations of the non-thermal shell-type supernova remnant HESS J1731-347 (G353.6-0.7). For the first time the complete remnant shell has been covered in
Study of a new central compact object: The neutron star in the supernova remnant G15.9+0.2
We present our study of the central point source CXOU J181852.0−150213 in the young Galactic supernova remnant (SNR) G15.9+0.2 based on the recent ~90 ks Chandra observations. The point source was
CXOU J160103.1–513353: another central compact object with a carbon atmosphere?
We report on the analysis of XMM-Newton observations of the central compact object CXOU J160103.1–513353 located in the center of the non-thermally emitting supernova remnant (SNR) G330.2+1.0. The
MODELING THE X-RAYS FROM THE CENTRAL COMPACT OBJECT PSR J1852+0040 IN KESTEVEN 79: EVIDENCE FOR A STRONGLY MAGNETIZED NEUTRON STAR
I present modeling of the X-ray pulsations from the central compact object (CCO) PSR J1852+0040 in the Galactic supernova remnant Kesteven 79. In the context of thermal surface radiation from a
What causes the absence of pulsations in Central Compact Objects in supernova remnants?
Most young neutron stars belonging to the class of Central Compact Objects (CCOs) in supernova remnants do not have known periodicities. We investigated seven such CCOs to understand the common
X-ray spectral analysis of the neutron star in SNR 1E 0102.2−7219
We re-analysed numerous archival Chandra X-ray observations of the bright supernova remnant (SNR) 1E 0102.2−7219 in the Small Magellanic Cloud, to validate the detection of a neutron star (NS) in
Is the SNR HESS J1731-347 Colliding with Molecular Clouds?
The supernova remnant HESS J1731-347 is a young supernova remnant (SNR) that displays a nonthermal X-ray and TeV shell structure. A molecular cloud at a distance of ∼3.2 kpc is spatially coincident
On the X-Ray Properties of the Putative Central Compact Object in 1E 0102.2−7219
We have analyzed the archival Chandra X-ray Observatory observations of the compact feature in the Small Magellanic Cloud supernova remnant 1E 0102.2−7219, which has recently been suggested to be the
NEW CONSTRAINTS ON THE COOLING OF THE CENTRAL COMPACT OBJECT IN CAS A
To examine the previously claimed fast cooling of the Central Compact Object (CCO) in the Cas A supernova remnant (SNR), we analyzed two Chandra observations of this CCO, taken in a setup minimizing

A neutron star with a carbon atmosphere in the Cassiopeia A supernova remnant
TLDR
This result suggests that there is nuclear burning in the surface layers and also identifies the compact X-ray source in the centre of the Cassiopeia supernova remnant as a very young (∼330-year-old) neutron star.
