Swift J1818.0-1607 is a new radio-loud magnetar discovered by the Swift Burst Alert Telescope on 2020 March 12. It has a magnetic field B~2.5e14 G, spin-down luminosity of 7.2e35 ergs/s, and characteristic age of ~470yr. Here we report on the Chandra observations of Swift J1818.0-1607, which allowed for a high-resolution imaging and spectroscopic study of the magnetar and its environment. The 1-10 keV spectrum of the magnetar is best described by a single blackbody model with a temperature of 1… Expand

A Magnetar-like Outburst from a High-B Radio Pulsar
Radio pulsars are believed to have their emission powered by the loss of rotational kinetic energy. By contrast, magnetars show intense X-ray and gamma-ray radiation whose luminosity greatly exceedsExpand
Magnetar-like activity from the central compact object in the SNR RCW103
The 6.67 hr periodicity and the variable X-ray flux of the central compact object (CCO) at the center of the SNR RCW 103, named 1E 161348-5055, have been always difficult to interpret within theExpand

Magnetar-Like Emission from the Young Pulsar in Kes 75
TLDR
The detection of magnetar-like x-ray bursts from the young pulsar PSR J1846–0258, at the center of the supernova remnant Kes 75, suggest that in neutron stars there exists a continuum of magnetic activity that increases with inferred magnetic field strength. Expand
A Low-Magnetic-Field Soft Gamma Repeater
TLDR
The magnetar population may include objects with a wider range of B-field strengths, ages, and evolutionary stages than observed so far, implying that this population is wider than was previously thought. Expand
