Compton Scattering Cross Sections in Strong Magnetic Fields: Advances for Neutron Star Applications Research Advisor: Dr. Peter Gonthier Various telescopes including RXTE, INTEGRAL, Suzaku, and Fermi have detected steady non-thermal X-ray emission in the 10 – 200 keV band from strongly magnetic neutron stars known as magnetars. Magnetic inverse Compton scattering is believed to be […]
