We report results on the timing and spectral analysis of observations of the millisecond pulsar PSR B1821−24 with RXTE, BeppoSAX and Chandra. The X-ray light curve is characterized by two narrow peaks at a phase distance of 0.452± 0.002. The average pulsed emission, over the range 1.6–20 keV, is well represented by a single power law with a photon index α = 1.30 +0.05 and unabsorbed (2–10 keV) pulsed X-ray flux of 3.9 × 10 erg cm s. We searched for a possible bunching of X-ray photons to verify… CONTINUE READING
