Multiwavelength Observations of Isolated Neutron Stars as a Tool to Probe the Properties of Their Surfaces

  • E. Zavlin


We show that an analysis of multiwavelength observations of isolated neutron stars based on neutron star atmosphere models can be used not only to evaluate the neutron star eeective temperature, but also to determine chemical composition of its surface. To demonstrate how this new method can be applied to a speciic object, we chose the old isolated neutron… (More)
