We investigate the photon emission from the electrosphere of a quark star. We show that at temperatures T ≈ 0.1-1 MeV, the dominating mechanism is the bremsstrahlung due to bending of electron trajectories in the mean Coulomb field of the electrosphere. The radiated energy for this mechanism is much larger than that for the Bethe-Heitler bremsstrahlung. The energy flux from the mean field bremsstrahlung also exceeds the one from the tunnel e e pair creation. We demonstrate that the LPM suppression of the photon emission is negligible.

    A neutron star in binary orbit with a low-mass non-degenerate companion becomes a source of x-rays with millisecond variability when mass accretion spins it up. Centrifugally driven changes in density profile may initiate a phase transition in a growing region of the core parallel to what may...

    It is a pity that the real state of matter in pulsar-like stars is still not determined confidently because of the uncertainty about cold matter at supranuclear density, even 40 years after the discovery of pulsar. Nuclear matter (related to neutron stars) is one of the speculations for the...

    The phase crossover in the energy range Δ T ≃ 50–60 MeV as explicitly suggested by the results of lattice calculations at μ = 0 is interpreted here in terms of an evolving superposition of hadron and subhadron states of nuclear matter, the former being gradually displaced by...

    We propose a model to explain how a Gamma Rays Burst can take place days or years after a supemova explosion. Our model is based on the conversion of a pure hadronic star (neutron star) into a star made at least in part of deconfined quark matter. The conversion process can be delayed if the...

    Arising from: F. Özel. 441, 1115–1117 (2006); Özel repliesIn a theoretical interpretation of observational data from the neutron star EXO 0748–676, Özel concludes that quark matter probably does not exist in the centre of neutron stars. However, this conclusion is based...

    We propose a new strategy to construct the equation of state (EOS) for neutron stars (NSs) with hadron-quark (H-Q) phase transition, by considering three density-regions. We supplement the EOS at H-Q region, very uncertain due to the confinement-deconfinement problems, by sandwitching in between...
