|Low Mass X-ray Binary||X-ray Sky||Galactic Jet Source|
The X-ray Binaries group is active in research in Galactic X-Ray Astronomy, in the fields of binary systems containing a neutron star or a black hole accreting mass from a companion. Our interests are in the processes that produce X-ray emission and of the geometry, size and physical conditions in the emission regions, particularly in accretion disc coronae and on the surface of the neutron star, and in the fundamental physics taking place in sources of widely varying luminosities including the launching of jets. These aspects are still poorly understood. This work has been carried out using the satellite observatories: Exosat, Rosat, Asca, BeppoSAX, Rossi-XTE, XMM-Newton, Chandra and Suzaku.
