Published Papers
Miscellaneous :
Chernyakova et al. 2005 MNRAS:
  • Multi epochs, ASCA, Beppo-SAX, XMM Newto, and INTEGRAL observations
  • Pulsations at 700 s spin up rate dν/dt= 2x10-13Hz/s
  • Spectrum typical of an accretion powered W-ray pulsar
  • Long term behaviour => HMXB with Be star
  • J~12.96, H=12.05, Ks=11.35
Rodriguez et al. 2009 A&A:
  • Swift observation confirms the association of IGR with 2RXP source
  • Spectral parameters slightly variable, but compatible with an accreting pulsar.
Coleiro et al. (2013) :
  • NTT/Sofi NIR Spectroscopy
  • Alhough only He I and Br(7-4) detected, typical of a Be companion
  • B0.5 Ve or B0 Ivpe
