We discuss X-ray and gamma-ray emissions from Crab-like pulsars, PSRs~J0537-6910 and~J0540-6919, in Large Magellanic Cloud. Fermi-LAT observations have resolved the gamma-ray emissions from these two pulsars and found the pulsed emissions from PSR~J0540-6919. The total pulsed radiation in the X-ray/gamma-ray energy bands of PSR~J0540-6919 is observed with the efficiency $\eta_{J0540}\sim 0.06$ (in 4$\pi$ sr), which is about a factor of ten larger than $\eta_{Crab}\sim 0.006$ of the Crab pulsar… Expand

X-ray studies of the gamma-ray pulsar J1826−1256 and its pulsar wind nebula with Chandra and XMM–Newton
We have analyzed archival XMM-Newton and Chandra observations of the gamma-ray radio-quiet pulsar J1826-1256 and its pulsar wind nebula. The pulsar spectrum can be described by a power-law model withExpand
IKT 16 aka PSR J0058–7218: discovery of a 22 ms energetic rotation-powered pulsar in the Small Magellanic Cloud
We report here on the discovery with XMM-Newton of pulsations at 22ms from the central compact source associated with IKT 16, a supernova remnant in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). The measuredExpand
Order parameters for the high-energy spectra of pulsars
Neutron stars are a common compact endpoint of the life of stars. Magnetized and rotating neutron stars emit beams of radiation, which can only be seen when the observer and the beam stand aligned.Expand
Spectral characterization of the non-thermal X-ray emission of gamma-ray pulsars
We report on a detailed spectral characterization of the non-thermal X-ray emission for a large sample of gamma-ray pulsars in the second Fermi-LAT catalogue. We outline the criteria adopted for theExpand
A novel approach for the analysis of the geometry involved in determining light curves of pulsars
In this work, we introduce the use of the differential geometry Frenet–Serret equations to describe a magnetic line in a pulsar magnetosphere. These equations, which need to be solved numerically,Expand


X-ray observations of the Large Magellanic Cloud pulsar PSR B0540-69 and its pulsar wind nebula
PSR B0540-69 is a young pulsar in the Large Magellanic Cloud that has similar properties with respect to the Crab Pulsar, and is embedded in a pulsar wind nebula (PWN). We have analysed the completeExpand
An extremely bright gamma-ray pulsar in the Large Magellanic Cloud
The detection of pulsed giga–electron volt gamma rays from the young pulsar PSR J0540–6919 in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, is reported, the first gamma-ray pulsar detected in another galaxy. Expand
Discovery of an Ultrafast X-Ray Pulsar in the Supernova Remnant N157B
We present the serendipitous discovery of 16 ms pulsed X-ray emission from the Crab-like supernova remnant N157B in the Large Magellanic Cloud. This is the fastest spinning pulsar associated with aExpand
Hard X-ray timing and spectral properties of PSR B0540-69
We report the hard X-ray properties of the young Crab-like LMC pulsar PSR B0540-69, using archival RXTE PCA (2-60 keV) and RXTE HEXTE (15-250 keV) data. Making use of the very long eective exposureExpand
