In this White Paper we present the potential of the enhanced X-ray Timing and Polarimetry (eXTP) mission for studies related to Observatory Science targets. These include flaring stars, supernova remnants, accreting white dwarfs, low and high mass X-ray binaries, radio quiet and radio loud active galactic nuclei, tidal disruption events, and gamma-ray bursts. eXTP will be excellently suited to study one common aspect of these objects: their often transient nature. Developed by an international Consortium led by the Institute of High Energy Physics of the Chinese Academy of Science, the eXTP mission is expected to be launched in the mid 2020s.


Dense matter with eXTP
Watts, Anna L.; et. al. (2019-02-01)
In this White Paper we present the potential of the Enhanced X-ray Timing and Polarimetry (eXTP) mission for determining the nature of dense matter; neutron star cores host an extreme density regime which cannot be replicated in a terrestrial laboratory. The tightest statistical constraints on the dense matter equation of state will come from pulse profile modelling of accretion-powered pulsars, burst oscillation sources, and rotation-powered pulsars. Additional constraints will derive from spin measurement...
Pulse timing studies of X-ray binaries: GX1+4,SWIFT J0513.4-6547, X Persei and SXP 1062
Serim, Muhammed Miraç; Baykal, Altan; İnam, Sıtkı Çağdaş; Department of Physics (2019)
This thesis focuses on X-ray timing properties of four different X-ray binary systems, based on archival data of the X-ray missions RXTE, Swift, XMM-Newton, Chandra and Integral. One of the selected sources is a LMXB system GX 1+4 while remaining sources are BeXB systems: SWIFT J0513.4-6547, X Persei and SXP 1062. For GX 1+4, the timing analysis of RXTE-PCA observations between 2001 March 3 and 2003 January 31 are presented. The timing solutions of two different time intervals are constructed. Futhermore, w...
Accretion in strong field gravity with eXTP
De Rosa, Alessandra; et. al. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-02-01)
In this paper we describe the potential of the enhanced X-ray Timing and Polarimetry (eXTP) mission for studies related to accretion flows in the strong field gravity regime around both stellar-mass and supermassive black-holes. eXTP has the unique capability of using advanced “spectral-timing-polarimetry” techniques to analyze the rapid variations with three orthogonal diagnostics of the flow and its geometry, yielding unprecedented insight into the inner accreting regions, the effects of strong field grav...
Very high energy gamma rays from the direction of Sagittarius A
Aharonian, F; et. al. (2004-10-01)
We report the detection of a point-like source of very high energy (VHE) gamma-rays coincident within 1' of Sgr A* obtained with the HESS array of Cherenkov telescopes. The gamma-rays exhibit a power-law energy spectrum with a spectral index of -2.2+/-0.09+/-0.15 and a flux above the 165 GeV threshold of (1.82+/-0.22)x10(-7) m(-2) s(-1). The measured flux and spectrum differ substantially from recent results reported in particular by the CANGAROO collaboration.
X-ray analysis of high mass x-ray binary pulsars
Şahiner, Şeyda; Baykal, Altan; İnam, Sıtkı Çağdaş; Department of Physics (2015)
In this thesis, X-ray properties of three high mass X-ray binary (HMXB) pulsars are analysed, using the data of X-ray satellites such as RXTE, INTEGRAL and Swift. Selected sources belong to different subgroups of the HMXB family. The first system, 4U 1907+09 is a classical wind-fed supergiant system with persistent X-ray emission; although it shows irregular flares and dips. SWIFT J1729.9-3437 and SWIFT J0513.4-6547 are newly discovered transient systems. Although the counterpart of SWIFT J1729.9-3437 could...
