WHAT DOES X-RAY BURSTER MEAN IN ENGLISH?
X-ray bursters are one class of X-ray binary stars exhibiting periodic and rapid increases in luminosity peaked in the X-ray regime of the electromagnetic spectrum. These astrophysical systems are composed of an accreting compact object, typically a neutron star or occasionally a black hole, and a companion 'donor' star; the mass of the donor star is used to categorize the system as either a high mass or low mass X-ray binary, abbreviated as HMXB and LMXB, respectively. X-ray bursters differ observationally from other X-ray transient sources, showing a sharp rise time followed by spectral softening. Individual burst energetics are characterized by an integrated flux of 1039–40 ergs, compared to the steady luminosity which is of the order 1037 ergs for accretion onto a neutron star. As such, the ratio of the burst flux to the persistent flux, denoted in the literature as α, ranges from 10 to 103 but is typically on the order of 100.

The source, called an X-ray burster, emits X rays at a constant low level; then,
suddenly and without warning, an abrupt increase occurs, followed by a gradual
decline. A typical burst lasts for 20 s. Several dozen X-ray bursters have been ...

X-RAY BURSTER the X-ray emission. In other cases, expansion of the normal
star in the course of its evolution results in a flow of gas toward the collapsed star.
This matter forms an accretion disk of hot material which emits X-rays. SEE ALSO

Universe: The Solar System
An X-ray burster is a member of a binary system that accretes matter from its
companion star, then releases nuclear energy when the accreted matter
undergoes thermonuclear reactions. By contrast, a burst from a magnetar is a
release of ...
