The field containing the candidate High Mass X-ray Binary IGR J01363+6610 was observed by XMM-Newton on 2009 July 31 for 28 ks. A Be star was previously suggested as the possible counterpart of the INTEGRAL source, and although Chandra, during a 2007 observation, did not detect an X-ray source at the position of the Be star, we find a variable source (XMMU J013549.5+661243) with an average X-ray flux of 2 ? 10?13 erg cm?2 s?1 (0.2-12 keV, unabsorbed) at this position with XMM-Newton.

The quiescent state of the accreting X-ray pulsar SAX J2103.5+4545
We present an X-ray timing and spectral analysis of the Be/X-ray binary SAX J2103.5+4545 at a time when the Be star's circumstellar disk had disappeared and thus the main reservoir of materialExpand
Three New Galactic Center X-Ray Sources Identified with Near-infrared Spectroscopy
We have conducted a near-infrared spectroscopic survey of 47 candidate counterparts to X-ray sources discovered by the Chandra X-Ray Observatory near the Galactic center (GC). Though a significantExpand
High-mass X-ray binaries in the Milky Way
High-mass X-ray binaries are fundamental in the study of stellar evolution, nucleosynthesis, structure and evolution of galaxies and accretion processes. Hard X-rays observations by INTEGRAL andExpand
Observing the Transient Pulsations of SMC X-1 with NuSTAR
We report on NuSTAR observations of transient pulsations in the neutron star X-ray binary SMC X-1. The transition from non-pulsing to pulsing states was not accompanied by a large change in flux.Expand
Testing the deep-crustal heating model using quiescent neutron-star very-faint X-ray transients and the possibility of partially accreted crusts in accreting neutron stars
It is assumed that accreting neutron stars in low-mass X-ray binaries are heated due to the compression of the existing crust by the freshly accreted matter which gives rise to a variety of nuclearExpand
Cooling of Accretion-Heated Neutron Stars
We present a brief, observational review about the study of the cooling behaviour of accretion-heated neutron stars and the inferences about the neutron-star crust and core that have been obtainedExpand
Advances in Understanding High-Mass X-ray Binaries with INTEGRALand Future Directions
High mass X-ray binaries are among the brightest X-ray sources in the Milky Way, as well as in nearby Galaxies. Thanks to their highly variable emissions and complex phenomenology, they haveExpand
