X-ray Emission Properties of the Old Pulsar PSR B 2224 + 65

Abstract

Using archival Chandra data we studied the X-ray emission properties of PSR B2224+65 and its environment. Albeit limited by photon statistics the spectral analysis suggests that the bulk of the emission from PSR B2224+65 is non-thermal. Fitting a power-law to the observed energy spectrum yields a photon index of Γ = 1.58 +0.43 −0.33. The possible origin of… (More)
