The magnetic-field strengths of accreting millisecond pulsars

Mukherjee, Dipanjan; Bult, Peter; van der Klis, Michiel; Bhattacharya, Dipankar

Description

In this work we have estimated upper and lower limits to the strength of the magnetic dipole moment of all 14 accreting millisecond X-ray pulsars observed with the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE). For each source we searched the archival RXTE data for the highest and lowest flux levels with a significant detection of pulsations. We assume these flux levels to correspond to the closest and farthest location of the inner edge of the accretion disc at which channelled accretion takes...[Show more]
