We present a deep observation with the X-Ray Multimirror Mission of PSR B1823-13, a young pulsar with similar properties to the Vela pulsar. We detect two components to the X-ray emission associated with PSR B1823-13: an elongated core of extent 30'' immediately surrounding the pulsar embedded in a fainter, diffuse component of emission 5' in extent, seen only on the southern side of the pulsar. The pulsar itself is not detected, either as a point source or through its pulsations. Both…
Chandra Observation of PSR B1823–13 and Its Pulsar Wind Nebula

An observation of the Vela-like pulsar B1823–13 and its synchrotron nebula with the Chandra X-Ray Observatory allowed us to resolve the pulsar and the fine structure of the nebula. The pulsar’s
Chandra and XMM-Newton Observations of the Vela-like Pulsar B1046–58
• Physics

We present results from Chandra and XMM-Newton observations of the radio pulsar B1046-58. A high-resolution spatial analysis reveals an asymmetric pulsar wind nebula (PWN), ~6′′ × 11′′ in size. The
X-Ray Emission from PSR J1809–1917 and Its Pulsar Wind Nebula, Possibly Associated with the TeV Gamma-Ray Source HESS J1809–193
• Physics
• 2007
We detected the 50 kyr old pulsar J1809-1917, and resolved its pulsar wind nebula (PWN) with the Chandra X-Ray Observatory. The pulsar spectrum fits a power-law+blackbody (PL+BB) model, with a photon
Chandra Detection of a Synchrotron Nebula around the Vela-like Pulsar J1016–5857

We present a Chandra X-ray observation of the very high energy γ-ray source HESS J1640 − 465. We identify a point source surrounded by a diffuse emission that fills the extended object previously
Discovery of an X-ray nebula around PSR J1718-3825 and implications for the nature of the $\gamma$-ray source HESS J1718–385
• Physics
• 2007
Combined X-ray synchrotron and inverse-Compton γ-ray observations of pulsar wind nebulae (PWN) may help to elucidate the processes of acceleration and energy loss in these systems. In particular,

An X-ray compact source was discovered with Chandra in a supernova remnant (SNR) N23, located in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). The compact source (CXOU J050552.3-680141) is seen in only the hard
First detection of a VHE gamma-ray spectral maximum from a Cosmic source: H.E.S.S. discovery of the Vela X nebula
• Physics

This result is the first clear measurement of a peak in the spectral energy distribution from a VHE gamma-ray source, likely related to inverse Compton emission.
Detectability of rotation-powered pulsars in future hard X-ray surveys
Recent INTEGRAL/IBIS hard X-ray surveys have detected about 10 young pulsars.We show hard X-ray properties of these 10 young pulsars, which have a luminosity of 10 33 −10 37 erg s −1 and a photon
