SGR 1627-41 was discovered in 1998 after a single active episode that lasted ~6 weeks. We report here our monitoring results of the decay trend of the persistent X-ray luminosity of the source during the last 5 years. We find an initial temporal power-law decay with index 0.47, reaching a plateau that is followed by a sharp (factor of 10) flux decline ~800 days after the source activation. The source spectrum is best described during the entire period by a single power law with high absorption… Expand
