Abstract

We report on four Chandra observations of the high-magnetic-field pulsar J1718-3718 taken in 2009 as well as a re-analysis of 2002 Chandra observations. We detect clear pulsations at the pulsar's period in the 2009 data. We found that the pulsar's X-ray radiation is mostly thermal emission with a blackbody temperature of 186-18+19eV. The pulsar's properties are compared to that of some high-magnetic-field pulsars and normal pulsars. Implications of our findings are discussed.
