Her X-1 is one of the the most intensively studied Accreting X-ray Binary Pulsars (AXBPs). This is largely because it is a bright and persistent X-ray pulsar, showing the largest variety of observable phenomena, partly due to the favorable geometry in observing the binary nearly edge-on. Her X-1 is the binary X-ray pulsar in which the first cyclotron line (or Cyclotron Resonant Scattering Feature - CRSF) was detected in 1975. Since then, we have made an effort to observe the source and the CRSF…

Accretion-powered pulsars consists of a dense and magnetized neutron star and a normal stellar companion. They are astrophysical laboratories for testing theories of dense matter physics and
