Published Papers
Miscellaneous :

Keek et al. 2006 ATel 810:
  • 20-60 keV Flux = 0.97 mCrab
Malizia et al. 2007:
  • Swift observations
  • NH=1.3 1022 cm-2, Γ=2.2
Tomsick et al. 2009:
  • Chandra observation => 1.5 arcmin extended source
  • source is a SNR. significant structure at the centre of the SNR => PWN. At the centre lies a point source that could be the putative neutron star.
  • Emission detected by INTEGRAL =likely the PWN or the SNR
  • Spectra extracted from a 1.5' circular region centred on the point source well fitted with absorbed power law: NH=3.1 x1022 cm-2 Γ=1.83
  • Non detection at TeV energies
Renaud et al. 2010:
  • RXTE, Chandra, INTEGRAL, Radio observations
  • RXTE => pulsation at 31.18 ms source iss a ms pulsar
  • The pulsar at the centre of a G310.6-1.6 classified as a PWN.
  • Pulsar detected in radio band, pulsed emission as well
  • MGPS 140045-632542 is the radio counterpart of the PWN
  • Not detected by Fermi
  • Spin down luminosity of 5.1x1037 erg/s => surface magnetic field 1.1 1012 G.
  • Source lies at about 7 kpc, and quite young (<~1000 yr).
Curran et al. 2011:
  • ESO NIR/Optical observations of the field
  • No counterpart detected down to Ks>17.2, H>18.0, J>19.2, i>21.2, R>21.0, V>21.8, B>22.3
