Integral deep observations of the small magellanic cloud

Integral deep observations of the small magellanic cloud
Integral deep observations of the small magellanic cloud
Deep observations of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) and region were carried out in the hard X-ray band by the INTEGRAL observatory in 2008-2009. The field of view of the instrument permitted simultaneous coverage of the entire SMC and the eastern end of the Magellanic Bridge. In total, INTEGRAL detected seven sources in the SMC and five in the Magellanic Bridge; the majority of the sources were previously unknown systems. Several of the new sources were detected undergoing bright X- ray outbursts and all the sources exhibited transient behaviour except the supergiant system SMC X-1. They are all thought to be High Mass X-ray Binary (HMXB) systems in which the compact object is a neutron star.

Abstract

Deep observations of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) and region were carried out in the hard X-ray band by the INTEGRAL observatory in 2008-2009. The field of view of the instrument permitted simultaneous coverage of the entire SMC and the eastern end of the Magellanic Bridge. In total, INTEGRAL detected seven sources in the SMC and five in the Magellanic Bridge; the majority of the sources were previously unknown systems. Several of the new sources were detected undergoing bright X- ray outbursts and all the sources exhibited transient behaviour except the supergiant system SMC X-1. They are all thought to be High Mass X-ray Binary (HMXB) systems in which the compact object is a neutron star.
