X-ray Counterparts of Millisecond Pulsars in Globular Clusters

  title={X-ray Counterparts of Millisecond Pulsars in Globular Clusters},
  author={Werner Becker and H. H. Huang and Tobias Prinz},
  journal={arXiv: High Energy Astrophysical Phenomena},
We have systematically studied the X-ray emission properties of globular cluster millisecond pulsars in order to evaluate their spectral properties and luminosities in a uniform way. Cross-correlating the radio timing positions of the cluster pulsars with the high resolution Chandra images revealed 31 X-ray counterparts identified in nine different globular cluster systems, including those in 47 Tuc. Timing analysis has been performed for all sources corresponding to the temporal resolution… Expand
A Search for X-ray Counterparts of Radio Pulsars
We describe a systematic search for X-ray counterparts of radio pulsars. The search was accomplished by cross-correlating the radio timing positions of all radio pulsars from the ATNF pulsar databaseExpand
High-Energy Emission of the First Millisecond Pulsar
We report on X-ray and gamma-ray observations of the millisecond pulsar B1937+21 taken with the Chandra X-ray Observatory, XMM-Newton, and the Fermi Large Area Telescope. The pulsar X-ray emissionExpand
Gamma-rays from millisecond pulsars in Globular Clusters
Globular clusters (GCs) with their ages of the order of several billion years contain many final products of evolution of stars such as: neutron stars, white dwarfs and probably also black holes.Expand
High Energy Radiation from Spider Pulsars
The population of millisecond pulsars (MSPs) has been expanded considerably in the last decade. Not only is their number increasing, but also various classes of them have been revealed. AmongExpand
Discovery of 59 ms pulsations from 1RXS J141256.0+792204 (Calvera)
We report on the results of a multi-wavelength study of the compact object candidate 1RXS J141256.0+792204 (Calvera). Calvera was observed in the X-rays with XMM-Newton/EPIC twice for a totalExpand


Detection of High-Energy Gamma-Ray Emission from the Globular Cluster 47 Tucanae with Fermi
The Fermi Large Area Telescope reveals up to 60 millisecond pulsars in this globular cluster 47 Tucanae, twice as many as predicted by radio observations, and finds gamma-ray pulsations for eight of them, suggesting that they share the same basic emission mechanism. Expand
