Thermal radiation from hot polar cap in pulsars release_hz4he23e5jcovdxsagua7gawzq

Released as a article .



Thermal radiation from hot polar caps is examined in radio pulsars with drifting subpulses. It is argued that if these subpulses correspond to sparking discharges of the inner acceleration region right above the polar cap surface then a simple relationship between the observed subpulse drift rate in radio and thermal X-ray luminosity from the polar cap heated by sparks should exist. This relationship is derived and tested in pulsars for which an appropriate good quality data is available.
