The plasma emission model of RBS1774

In the present paper we construct a self-consistent theory, interpreting the observational properties of RBS1774. It is well known that the distribution function of relativistic particles is one-dimensional at the pulsar surface. However, cyclotron instability causes an appearance of transverse momenta of relativistic electrons, which as a result, start to radiate in the synchrotron regime. We study the process of the quasi-linear diffusion developed by means of the cyclotron instability on the basis of the Vlasov’s kinetic equation. This mechanism provides generation of measured optical and X-ray emission on the light cylinder lengthscales. A different approach of the synchrotron theory is considered, giving the spectral energy distribution that is in a good agreement with the XMM-Newton observational data. We also provide the possible explanation of the spectral feature at 0.7 keV, in the framework of the model.
