We collate the evidence for rotation-powered neutron stars that are visible as X-ray sources and not as radio pulsars. To date, 10 objects have been proposed, and one, Geminga, has been confirmed as a pulsar by the detection of 4.2-Hz pulsations. Several indicators have been used to support the proposition that the X-ray sources are isolated neutron stars, including high X-ray to optical/radio flux ratios, a constant X-ray flux and coincidence with a γ-ray source. Seven of the published neutron… Expand
