Refining Chandra/ACIS Subpixel Event Repositioning Using a Backside Illuminated CCD Model

Kavli Affiliate: Gregory Y. Prigozhin | First 5 Authors: Jingqiang Li, Joel H. Kastner, Gregory Y. Prigozhin, Norbert S. Schulz, | Summary: Subpixel event repositioning (SER) techniques have been demonstrated to significantly improve the already unprecedented spatial resolution of Chandra X-ray imaging with the Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer (ACIS). Chandra CCD SER techniques are based […]

XMM-Newton observations of PSR B1823-13: An asymmetric synchrotron nebula around a Vela-like pulsar

Kavli Affiliate: Norbert Schulz | First 5 Authors: Bryan Gaensler, Norbert Schulz, Vicky Kaspi, Michael Pivovaroff, Werner Becker | Summary: We present a deep observation with the X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission of PSR B1823-13, a young pulsar with similar properties to the Vela pulsar. We detect two components to the X-ray emission associated with PSR B1823-13: […]
