ProjectDoroshenko eRO-STEP – Akkretierende schwarze Löcher und Neutronensterne in der Milchstraße

Basic data

Acronym:
Doroshenko eRO-STEP
Title:
Akkretierende schwarze Löcher und Neutronensterne in der Milchstraße
Duration:
3/31/2021 to 3/31/2021
Abstract / short description:
The goal of the project is primarily to take advantage of the eROSITA survey data to explore the faint end of the X-ray luminosity functions of X-ray binaries, both low-mass and high-mass. The enhanced sensitivity with respect to previous surveys will allow sampling a larger fraction of objects in the Galaxy and the Magellanic Clouds, down to luminosities that are typical of the quiescent states of these sources.
