Ccd photometry and time series analysis of v2275 cyg and rw umi using data from the TUBITAK national observatory

Yılmaz, Mustafa Arda
In this work, we analyze the data from 1.5 m telescope of Tubitak National Observatory (TUG) for two objects V2275 Cyg and RW UMi. After applying aperture and PSF photometry to the CCD data, we derive the light curve of the objects. Also we apply discrete Fourier transform and Scargle time series analysis to obtain power spectrum and search for periodicities in their power spectra in which both systems show interesting properties. We discover large variations in V2275 Cyg due to irradiation effects on the secondary, with an orbital period Porb = 0.316±0.007 day. We also detect a very short orbital period for RW UMi Porb = 1.96±0.073h and also a spin period Pspin = 1.29±0.036h in the presence of several beat frequencies. These results (if con?rmed) lead us to say that RW UMi can be an intermediate of polar system.


X-ray observations of accretion powered pulsars
İnam, Sıtkı Çağdaş; Baykal, Altan; Department of Physics (2004)
In this thesis, X-ray observations of four accretion powered pulsars are presented. Using RXTE observations of 4U 1907+09, we found three new pulse periods of the source. We found that the source spun-down almost at a constant rate of Þ

We present timing and spectral analysis of Swift-XRT (X-ray Telescope) and RXTE-PCA (Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer-proportional Counter Array) observations of the transient Be/X-ray pulsar SWIFT J0513.4-6547 during its outburst in 2009 and its rebrightening in 2014. From 2009 observations, short-term spin-up rate of the source after the peak of the outburst is found to have about half of the value measured at the peak of the outburst by Coe et al. When the source is quiescent between 2009 and 2014, average sp...
Global Site Selection for Astronomy

A global site selection for astronomy was performed with 1 km spatial resolution (similar to 1 gigapixel in size) using long-term and up-to-date datasets to classify the entire terrestrial surface of the Earth. Satellite instruments are used to get the following datasets of geographical information system (GIS) layers: cloud coverage, digital elevation model, artificial light, precipitable water vapour, aerosol optical depth, wind speed, and land use and land cover. A multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA)...

We report on Chandra observations of 18 hard X-ray (>20 keV) sources discovered with the INTEGRAL satellite near the Galactic plane. For 14 of the INTEGRAL sources, we have uncovered one or two potential Chandra counterparts per source. These provide soft X-ray (0.3-10 keV) spectra and subarcsecond localizations, which we use to identify counterparts at other wavelengths, providing information about the nature of each source. Despite the fact that all of the sources are within 5 degrees of the plane, four o...

We study the X-ray and optical properties of the ultraluminous X-ray source (ULX) X-6 in the nearby galaxy NGC 4258 (M106) based on the archival XMM-Newton, Chandra, Swift, and Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations. The source has a peak luminosity of L-X similar to 2 x 10(39) erg s(-1) in the XMM-Newton observation of 2004 June. Consideration of the hardness ratios and the spectral model parameters shows that the source seems to exhibit possible spectral variations throughout the X-ray observations. In...
