The cataclysmic variable SDSSJ 015543.40+002807.2 is confirmed to be a magnetic system of the AM Herculis type. With an orbital period of 87.13 minutes, it is also the shortest-period eclipsing Polar known. Monitoring with XMM-Newton finds a high-state light curve dominated by a single X-ray emitting accretion pole located slightly prograde of the secondary… CONTINUE READING
