Model Spectra of Neutron Star Surface Thermal Emission –discuss some results

Originally I should report the results of the model using diffusion approximation, but there are still some problems.

Lun-Wen Yeh 2006.4.13


outline

  • The flat temperature profile at outer atmosphere.

  • The plateau of temperature profile.

  • The additional opacity.

  • The limb darkening and the magnetic beaming.

  • The spectra.

  • The absorption features of both polarization modes.

Ps: All the following results are calculated in Teff=106K; B=1012 gauss or zero filed.


The flat temperature profile at outer atmosphere


This flat feature would extend to τ=0. That is because of the plane-parallel assumption.


The gray atmosphere in the plane-parallel geometry

Radiative equilibrium

LTE( if no scattering )

f is Eddington factor which is ~ 1/3 at deep atmosphere and ~ 1 at outer atmosphere.


The spherical symmetry geometries for the gray atmosphere.

Radiative equilibrium

LTE( if no scattering )


The plateau of temperature profile


rho~0.001-0.05 g/cm3


rho~0.002-0.01 g/cm3


rho~0.005-0.2 g/cm3


θB=0 degree

rho~0.001-2 g/cm3


rho~0.002-2 g/cm3


rho~0.3-1 g/cm3


rho~0.07-3 g/cm3


rho~1-3 g/cm3


The plateau feature is because

the photon-matter decoupling areas have stronger angle-dependence for the O-mode photons than the X-mode photons

and most O-mode photons decouple than X-mode photons at more outer layer.


The additional opacity


In the cold plasma assumption the refractive index is

Θ is the angle between the magnetic field and the direction of intensity.

+ is O-mode; - is X-mode


Resonance frequency

( It is dependent on θ.)

Cutoff frequency

(It is independent of θ)


ωp

ωc

ωL

ωp

ωR


We define an angle-average optical depth:

where i=1 for O-mode photons and i=2 for X-mode photons.


The limb darkening and the magnetic beaming


frequency=1017 Hz


The spectra


θB=0o, O-mode


θB=0o, X-mode


θB=90o,ΦR=0o, O-mode


θB=90o,ΦR=0o, X-mode


The absorption features of both polarization modes
