We present results obtained from three BeppoSAX observations of the accretion-powered transient X-ray pulsar KS 1947+300 carried out during the declining phase of its 2000 November-2001 June outburst. A detailed spectral study of KS 1947+300 across a wide X-ray band (0.1-100.0 keV) is attempted for the first time here. Timing analysis of the data clearly shows a 18.7 s pulsation in the X-ray light curves in the above energy band. The pulse profile of KS 1947+300 is characterized by a broad peak… Expand

Revisiting BeppoSAX and NuSTAR observations of KS 1947+300 and the missing cyclotron line

Rapid spectral and timing variability of Be/X-ray binaries during type II outbursts
X-ray colour–colour (CD) and colour–intensity (HID) diagrams are powerful tools that allow investigation of spectral variability without assuming any spectral model. These diagrams have been usedExpand
Cyclotron lines in highly magnetized neutron stars
Cyclotron lines, also called cyclotron resonant scattering features are spectral features, generally appearing in absorption, in the X-ray spectra of objects containing highly magnetized neutronExpand
