We analyzed broadband X-ray and radio data of the magnetar SGR J1935+2154 taken in the aftermath of its 2014, 2015, and 2016 outbursts. The source soft X-ray spectrum <10 keV is well described with a blackbody+power-law (BB+PL) or 2BB model during all three outbursts. Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array observations revealed a hard X-ray tail, with a PL photon index Γ = 0.9, extending up to 50 keV, with flux comparable to the one detected <10 keV. Imaging analysis of Chandra data did not… 

The X-Ray Reactivation of the Radio Bursting Magnetar SGR J1935+2154

A few years after its discovery as a magnetar, SGR J1935+2154 started a new burst-active phase on 2020 April 27, accompanied by a large enhancement of its X-ray persistent emission. Radio single

X-Ray Monitoring of the Magnetar CXOU J171405.7–381031 in Supernova Remnant CTB 37B

We present the results of our 8 yr X-ray monitoring campaign on CXOU J171405.7−381031, the magnetar associated with the faint supernova remnant (SNR) CTB 37B. It is among the youngest by inferred

Deep Upper Limit on the Optical Emission during a Hard X-Ray Burst from the Magnetar SGR J1935+2154

In 2021 September the magnetar SGR J1935+2154 entered a stage of burst/flaring activity in the hard X-ray band. On 2021 September 10, we observed SGR J1935+2154 with the fiber-fed fast optical photon

HXMT identification of a non-thermal X-ray burst from SGR J1935+2154 and with FRB 200428

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are short pulses observed in the radio band from cosmological distances1. One class of models invokes soft gamma-ray repeaters (SGRs), or magnetars, as the sources of FRBs2.

Constraining the X-Ray–Infrared Spectral Index of Second-timescale Flares from SGR 1935+2154 with Palomar Gattini-IR

The Galactic magnetar SGR 1935+2154 has been reported to produce the first example of a bright millisecond-duration radio burst (FRB 200428) similar to the cosmological population of fast radio

Two New Outbursts and Transient Hard X-Rays from 1E 1048.1-5937

Since its discovery, 1E 1048.1−5937 has been one of the most active magnetars, both in terms of radiative outbursts, and changes to its spin properties. Here we report on a continuing monitoring

INTEGRAL Discovery of a Burst with Associated Radio Emission from the Magnetar SGR 1935+2154

We report on International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory (INTEGRAL) observations of the soft γ-ray repeater SGR 1935+2154 performed between 2020 April 28 and May 3. Several short bursts with

Quasi-periodic Oscillations of the X-Ray Burst from the Magnetar SGR J1935–2154 and Associated with the Fast Radio Burst FRB 200428

The origin(s) and mechanism(s) of fast radio bursts (FRBs), which are short radio pulses from cosmological distances, have remained a major puzzle since their discovery. We report a strong

Revival of the Magnetar PSR J1622–4950: Observations with MeerKAT, Parkes, XMM-Newton, Swift, Chandra, and NuSTAR

New radio (MeerKAT and Parkes) and X-ray (XMM-Newton, Swift, Chandra, and NuSTAR) observations of PSR J1622–4950 indicate that the magnetar, in a quiescent state since at least early 2015,

NICER Observation of the Temporal and Spectral Evolution of Swift J1818.0−1607: A Missing Link between Magnetars and Rotation-powered Pulsars

We report on the hard X-ray burst and the first ∼100 days of NICER monitoring of the soft X-ray temporal and spectral evolution of the newly discovered magnetar Swift J1818.0−1607. The burst
