X-ray imaging and spectroscopy can be used to probe the binary content of globular clusters. Binaries are thought to play a key role in the dynamical evolution of the clusters by serving as an internal source of energy which counters the tendency of their cores to collapse. Various kinds of binaries are found in clusters in X-rays, including BY Dra or RS CVn systems, Cataclysmic Variables and low mass X-ray binaries as well as millisecond pulsars. In this review, we will present the most recent… CONTINUE READING
