Discovery of Pulsed X-ray Emission from the Smc Transient Rx J0117.6-7330


Received ; accepted – 2 – ABSTRACT We report on the detection of pulsed, broad-band, X-ray emission from the transient source RX J0117.6-7330. The pulse period of 22 seconds is detected by the ROSAT/PSPC instrument in a 1992 Sep 30-Oct 2 observation and by the CGRO/BATSE instrument during the same epoch.
