NICER observation list: Target ID 260101

Abstract

We propose to observe the AMXP J17062 for a total exposure of 50 ks during the NICER cycle-1 AO. Such observations will allow us to obtain the first multi-year phase coherent pulsar timing analysis for an accreting millisecond pulsar in outburst. This analysis will allow us to study the pulsar spin evolution due to accretion at unprecedented detail, and will yield important constraints on the accretion torques active in LMXBs. NICER is currently the only instrument capable of performing these measurements. Hence our proposed research represent an opportunity for unique science at little to no risk.
