Difference Frequency of Kilohertz QPOs Not Equal to Half the Burst Oscillation Frequency in 4U 1636–53

Abstract

We have analyzed data obtained during two observations with the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer on January 5 and 8, 1997, of the low-mass X-ray binary (LMXB) and atoll source 4U 1636–53. We measure the frequency separation of the two simultaneous kilohertz quasi-periodic oscillations (kHz QPOs) in this source to be 253.7±4.7 and 246.4±5.4 Hz, respectively… (More)
