Simultaneous optical polarimetry and X - ray observations of the magnetic CV CP Tuc ( AX J 2315 – 592 )

Abstract

CP Tuc (AX J2315–592) shows a dip in X-rays which lasts for approximately half the binary orbit and is deeper in soft X-rays compared with hard X-rays. It has been proposed that this dip is due to the accretion stream obscuring the accretion region from view. If CP Tuc was a polar, as has been suggested, then the length of such a dip would make it unique… (More)
