We present results of the analysis of data collected in 57-ks XMM-Newton and 505-ks Chandra observations of the nearby (' 120 pc) isolated neutron star RXJ1856.5–3754. We confirm most of the statements made by Burwitz et al. (2001) who discussed the original 55-ks Chandra data. Detailed spectral analysis of the combined X-ray and optical data rules out the currently available nonmagnetic light and heavy element neutron star atmosphere (LTE) models with hydrogen, helium, iron and solar… CONTINUE READING
