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 […]
Caleb Billman and Matt Eiles are hard at work in Dr. Gonthier’s research group.
Caitlin Taylor and Caleb Billman are preparing to go to NASA Goddard Space Flight Center where they will analyze data taken with space based instruments. They will spend their time working in close collaboration with Prof. Gonthier and his collaborators at Goddard.
