Published Papers
Miscellaneous :
Kuiper et al. (2006) Atel 684:
  • Flux of ~1.4 mCrab in the 20-65 keV band.

Masetti et al. (2006):
  • Halpha EW=34 Angstrom
Tomsick et al. (2008) :
  • Chandra position confirms all proposed associations
  • Absorbed power law, NH=3.2x1022 cm-2, Γ= 1.0, Unabs. 0.3-10 keV flux=2.0 e-12 erg/cm2/s
  • Not a high level of local absorption
  • Chandra spectrum significantly lower than INTEGRAL=> significant change in mass accretion rate
Rodriguez et al. (2009) :
  • Swift Results compatible with Chandra
  • Further confirmation of source being an HMXB
Coleiro et al. (2013) :
  • NTT/Sofi NIR Spectroscopy
  • Several lines in spectra among which He I, Mg II, He II, Na I and Fe II in emission
  • Possible [Fe II] lines in H-band spectrum
  • NaI => mow excitation region not directly exposed to radiation of star and compact object
  • source surrounded by highly stratified environment with region shielded form direct stellar radiation
  • Clear mIR excess compatible wih 1016 K dust around the system
  • Possible sgB[e]
