J/A+A/386/1001  Thermal emission from low-field neutron stars (Gaensicke+, 2002)

Thermal emission from low-field neutron stars Gaensicke, B.T., Braje, T.M., Romani, R.W. <Astron. Astrophys. 386, 1001 (2002)> =2002A&A...386.1001G
ADC_Keywords: Models, atmosphere Keywords: stars: neutron ; stars: atmospheres - radiative transfer - radiation mechanisms: thermal Description: We present a new grid of LTE model atmospheres for weakly magnetic (B≲1010G) neutron stars, using X opacity and equation of state data from the OPAL project and employing a fully frequency- and angle-dependent radiation transfer. Model spectra for low-field neutron stars with three different photospheric compositions are presented: (1) pure hydrogen atmospheres, (2) atmospheres with solar abundances, and (3) pure iron atmospheres. Each grid covers 29 effective temperatures log(Teff[K])=5.10-6.50 in steps of 0.05. The model spectra are tabulated as angle-averaged unredshifted (surface) Eddington fluxes. All spectra have been calculated for a canonical neutron star configuration, Mns=1.4M, Rns=10km, corresponding to a surface gravitational acceleration of log(g)=14.386. The same model grids are also available as XSPEC tables at File Summary:

Note (1): Eddington flux and radiation flux are related by 4*π*H(E)=F(E), i.e. 4*π*Integral{}(H(E)dE)=σ*Teff4 where σ is the Stefan-Boltzmann constant (5.67x10-8 SI)
