We present radio, optical, ultraviolet, and X-ray observations of the isolated, thermally emitting neutron star RX J0720.4-3125 using the Parkes radio telescope, the Very Large Array, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory. From these data we show that the optical/UV spectrum of RX J0720.4-3125 is not well fitted by a Rayleigh-Jeans tail as previously thought but is instead best fitted by either a single nonthermal power law or a combination of a Rayleigh-Jeans tail and a… Expand
