We have detected the optical counterpart of the proposed double degenerate polar RX J1914+24. The I-band light curve is modulated on the 9.5-min period seen in X-rays. There is no evidence for any other periods. No significant modulation is seen in J. The infrared colours of RX J1914+24 are not consistent with a main-sequence dwarf secondary star. Our ASCA spectrum of RX J1914+24 is typical of a heavily absorbed polar and our ASCA light curve also shows only the 9.5-min period. We find that the… 
Optical/infrared spectroscopy and photometry of the short-period binary RX J1914+24
We present observations of the proposed double-degenerate polar RX J1914+24. Our optical and infrared spectra show no emission lines. This, coupled with the lack of significant levels of
Unveiling the nature of the 321s Orbital Period X-ray source RX J0806.3+1527
A nearly simultaneous X-ray/optical (Chandra and VLT) observational campaign of RX J0806.3+1527 has been carried out during November 2001. These observations allowed us to phase the X-ray and optical
Unveiling the Nature of the 321 Second Modulation in RX J0806.3+1527: Near-Simultaneous Chandra and Very Large Telescope Observations
We report on the first near-simultaneous X-ray and optical observations of RX J0806.3+1527. The source is believed to be a 321 s orbital period ultracompact binary system hosting an X-ray-emitting
RX J0806.3+1527: A double degenerate binary with the shortest known orbital period (321s)
We carried out optical observations of the field of the X–ray pulsator RX J0806.3+1527. A blue $V =$ 21.1 star was found to be the only object consistent with the X–ray position. VLT FORS spectra
Phase Coherent Timing of RX J0806.3+1527 with ROSAT and CHANDRA
RX J0806.3+1527 is an ultracompact, double-degenerate binary with the shortest known orbital period (321.5 s). Hakala et al. have recently reported new optical measurements of the orbital frequency
Spin up in RX J0806+15: the shortest period binary
RX J0806+15 has recently been identified as the binary system with the shortest known orbital period. We present a series of observations of RX J0806+15, including new optical observations taken one
Geometrical constraints upon the unipolar model of V407 Vul and RXJ0806.3+1527
V407 Vul and RX J0806.3 + 1527 are X-ray emitting stars with X-ray light curves that are 100 per cent modulated on periods of 569 and 321 s, respectively. These periods and no others are also seen at
Detection of a 23.6 min periodic modulation in the optical counterpart of 3XMMJ051034.6–670353
We present high speed optical photometric observations made using the NTT and ULTRACAM of the optical counterpart of 3XMMJ051034.6–670353, which was recently identified as an X-ray source showing a
EVIDENCE FOR ORBITAL DECAY OF RX J1914.4+2456: GRAVITATIONAL RADIATION AND THE NATURE OF THE X-RAY EMISSION
RX J1914.4+2456 is a candidate double-degenerate binary (AM CVn) with a putative 569 s orbital period. If this identification is correct, then it has one of the shortest binary orbital periods known,
XMM-Newton observations of the ultra-compact binary RX J1914+24
We present XMM‐Newton observations of the 569-s-period system RX J1914+24 (V407 Vul). This period is believed to represent the binary orbital period making it an ultracompact binary system. By
