Light curves in the parallel (black circles) and anti-parallel (blue triangles) configurations, normalized by the isolated pulsar spindown power L0. The diagnostic starts at the dash-dotted line. The merger starts at the dashed line, until the two stars touch at the dotted line. Photons are still collected by the observer until the solid line is reached. The time is normalized by the spin period of the pulsar.
