The nature of the X-ray transient MAXI J0556-332

Abstract:

Phase-resolved spectroscopy of the newly discovered X-ray transient MAXIJ0556-332 has revealed the presence of narrow emission lines in the Bowen region that most likely arise on the surface of the mass donor star in this low-mass X-ray binary. A period search of the radial velocities of these lines provides two candidate orbital periods (16.43 ± 0.12 and 9.754 ± 0.048h), which differ from any potential X-ray periods reported. Assuming that MAXIJ0556-332 is a relatively high-inclination syste...
