Two long - period X - ray pulsars detected in the SMC field around XTE J 0055 − 727 ⋆

Abstract

An XMM-Newton target of opportunity observation of the field around the transient 18.37 s pulsar XTE J0055−727 in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) revealed two bright, long-period X-ray pulsars in the EPIC data. A new pulsar, XMMU J005517.9−723853, with a pulse period of 701.7 ± 0.8 s was discovered and 500.0 ± 0.2 s pulsations were detected from XMMU… (More)
