The outer gap model is used here to explain the spectrum and the energy dependent light curves of the X-ray and soft ∞-ray radiations of the spin-down powered pulsar PSR B1509-58. In the outer gap model, most pairs inside the gap are created around the null charge surface and the gap’s electric field separates the two charges to move in opposite directions. Consequently, the region from the null charge surface to the light cylinder is dominated by the outflow of particles and that from the null…

GAMMA-RAY SPECTRAL PROPERTIES OF MATURE PULSARS: A TWO-LAYER MODEL

We use a simple two-layer outer gap model, whose accelerator consists of a primary region and a screening region, to discuss the γ-ray spectrum of mature pulsars detected by Fermi. By solving the

Energetic Radiation from Rapidly Spinning Pulsars I: Outermagnetosphere Gaps

The growth of charge depleted regions (gaps) in the outermagnetosphere of rapidly spinning magnetized neutron stars is limited by e* production. In the Vela pulsar a pair of e+ and ecreated within

The curved X-ray spectrum of PSR B1509-58 observed with BeppoSAX

We report timing and spectral results for PSR B1509 58 observed by BeppoSAX in February 1998. We obtained pulse proles with high statistical signicance from 0.1 to 300 keV that exhibit the well-known

We present the results of observations of the PSR B1509-58/MSH 15-52 system in X-rays (2-250 keV) by the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer. The spectra of the peak of the pulsed component (radio phase

The pulsed hard X-ray spectrum of PSR B1509-58

Oriented Scintillation Spectrometer Experiment (OSSE) observed the 150 ms X-ray pulsar PSR B1509-58 m the supernova remnant MSH 15-52 for 4 weeks in 1992. The pulsed spectrum from 50 keV to 5 MeV is
