NICER observation list: Target ID 261401

Abstract

X-ray Isolated Neutron Stars are nearby, thermally emitting objects. Their X-ray spectra have been considered to be reproduced simply by a single-temperature blackbody model.We found that all the XINSs exhibit another higher temerature blackbody emission at faint high-energy end. In the case of the brightest one, RX J1856.5-3754 (J1856), the emission radius is about 100 m, suggesting the emission region will be polar cap on its surface. If so, the high temperature emission should be responsible to pulsation. This suggestion allows us to derive mass-radius ratio of the star using the light-bending effect, analysing the energy resolved light curve. However, current available data do not have enough statistics. We thus need deep observation with NICER, although short pointings have been done.
