One of the most recent discoveries of the INTEGRALobservatory is the existence of a previously unknown popula tion of X-ray sources in the inner arms of the Galaxy. IGR J17544 −2619, IGR J16465 −4507 and XTE J1739 −302 are among these sources. Although the nature of these systems is still unexp lained, the investigations of the optical /NIR counterparts of the two last sources, combined with high energy data, have provi ded evidence of them being highly absorbed high mass X-ray binaries with… CONTINUE READING
