Description

X-ray spectral properties of isolated neutron stars (magnetars, magnificient seven, CCOs, rotation-powered pulsars) carry precious information about the surface and inner temperature and magnetic field. An overview of the heterogeneous observational properties of the whole X-ray pulsar population is presented and used to constrain properties of the NS interior, surface and magnetosphere.
