PF of the reprocessed emission of a fan-beam pattern for various inclination angles between the magnetic and rotation axis. The dotted line represents the PF of the integrated emission over a cylindrical surface of angular size of 10° and located at the equatorial plane of the NS. The solid line is the calculated reprocessed PF for a combination of polar beam and fan beam (FPolar∕FFan = 0.25). The dashed blue and green lines show the PF of reprocessed emission that would originate from a pure fan-beam and polar-beam illuminating pattern, respectively. The red horizontal line represents the limit on the PF given the variability of the observed flux of the thermal component, presented in Fig. 7.
