Abstract

Results of a search for X-ray counterparts of radio pulsars with the EPIC-PN instrument on board XMM-Newton are presented. Despite the mostly relatively short exposure times (<8 ks, PSR B0823+26 was observed for 50 ks) these observations have resulted in much improved upper limits over previous work and, in the case of PSR, B1719-37, a first detection in X-rays. The obtained upper limits and detection are found to be consistent with the empirical relation as found by Verbunt et al. and Becker & Trümper.
