Since the observation of pulsed emission from Centaurus X-3 (Giacconi et al., ) and the discovery of its binary nature (Schreirer et al., ), more than other X-ray binary pulsars (XBPs) have been qualitative physical scenario able to explain their pulsed X-ray emission was first elaborated by Shklovskii () before their discovery: X-rays are produced in the Cited by: 6.

The X-ray emission shows a minimum at orbital phase ∼, close to the so-called superior conjunction of the compact object, and a maximum at phase ∼, very close to the inferior conjunction of the compact object.

The system is believed to be a Be/X-ray binary judging from its hard X-ray spectrum index, but up to now no X-ray pulse period or X-ray outburst have been measured.

Centaurus X-3 (4U ) is an X-ray pulsar with a period of seconds. It was the first X-ray pulsar to be discovered, and the third X-ray source to be discovered in the constellation system consists of a neutron star orbiting a massive, O-type supergiant star dubbed Krzeminski's star /(k) ʃ ɛ ˈ m ɪ n s k i z / after its discoverer, Wojciech llation: Centaurus.Sun), the system is referred to as a High-Mass X-ray Binary (HMXB).

When the companion is a low-mass star (typically a fraction of the mass of our Sun), the system is called a Low-Mass X-ray Binary (LMXB). The two types of systems are the result of different paths Author: P S Ray, M T Wolff, K S Wood, P Hertz.Gamma-ray binaries are composed of a massive star and a compact object.

Gamma-ray binaries have been detected from radio up to TeV gamma-rays but most of their emission is radiated in the MeV band, hence their name. Five systems are currently known .
