Using archival X-ray data we have found point-like X-ray counterpart candidates positionally coincident with six $\gamma$-ray pulsars discovered recently in the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope data by the Einstein@Home project. The candidates for PSRs J0002$+$6216, J0554$+$3107, J1844$-$0346 and J1105$-$6037 are detected with Swift, and those for PSRs J0359$+$5414 and J2017$+$3625 are detected with Chandra. Despite a low count statistics for some candidates, assuming plausible constraints on…

Classification of New X-Ray Counterparts for Fermi Unassociated Gamma-Ray Sources Using the Swift X-Ray Telescope
Approximately one-third of the gamma-ray sources in the third Fermi-LAT catalog are unidentified or unassociated with objects at other wavelengths. Observations with Swift-XRT have yielded possible
A multiwavelength search for black widow and redback counterparts of candidate γ-ray millisecond pulsars
The wealth of detections of millisecond pulsars (MSPs) in $\gamma$-rays by {\em Fermi} has spurred searches for these objects among the several unidentified $\gamma$-ray sources. Interesting targets
Observations of one young and three middle-aged γ-ray pulsarswith the Gran Telescopio Canarias
We used the 10.4 m Gran Telescopio Canarias to search for the optical counterparts to four isolated γ-ray pulsars, all detected in the X-rays by either XMM-Newton or Chandra but not yet in the
A Search for TeV Gamma-Ray Emission from Pulsar Tails by VERITAS
We report on the search for very-high-energy gamma-ray emission from the regions around three nearby supersonic pulsars (PSR B0355+54, PSR J0357+3205, and PSR J1740+1000) that exhibit long X-ray
The Tail of PSR J0002+6216 and the Supernova Remnant CTB 1
We have carried out VLA imaging and a Fermi timing analysis of the 115 ms gamma-ray and radio pulsar PSR J0002+6216. We found that the pulsar lies at the apex of a narrowly collimated cometary-like 7
Multiwavelength constraints on the unidentified Galactic TeV sources HESS J1427−608, HESS J1458−608, and new VHE γ-ray source candidates
The H.E.S.S. Galactic Plane Survey (HGPS) revealed 78 TeV sources among which 47 are not clearly associated with a known object. We present a multiwavelength approach to constrain the origin of the
A search for radio pulsars in five nearby supernova remnants
Most neutron stars are expected to be born in supernovae, but only about half of supernova remnants (SNRs) are associated with a compact object. In many cases, a supernova progenitor may have
X-Ray Spectra and Multiwavelength Machine Learning Classification for Likely Counterparts to Fermi 3FGL Unassociated Sources
We conduct X-ray spectral fits on 184 likely counterparts to Fermi-LAT 3FGL unassociated sources. Characterization and classification of these sources allows for more complete population studies of
Multiwavelength Spectral Analysis and Neural Network Classification of Counterparts to 4FGL Unassociated Sources
The Fermi-LAT unassociated sources represent some of the most enigmatic gamma-ray sources in the sky. Observations with the Swift-XRT and -UVOT telescopes have identified hundreds of likely X-ray and
Thermal luminosities of cooling neutron stars
Ages and thermal luminosities of neutron stars, inferred from observations, can be interpreted with the aid of the neutron star cooling theory to gain information on the properties of superdense
