Fig. 1.


Observed effective NS temperature () evolution of XTE J1701−462 and EXO 0748−676, after the end of their accretion outbursts, shown in blue and red, respectively. The dotted grey lines are simple functions (exponential decay levelling off to a constant value) used to guide the eye. The solid grey rectangle highlights the region of interest where the decay and subsequent rise in the is observed in the cooling curves. The date of the end of outburst for XTE J1701−462 is MJD 54322 and that for EXO 0748−676 is MJD 54714 (Fridriksson et al. 2011; Degenaar et al. 2009).
