Extended Data Fig. 2: Results for model E with equal initial energy in toroidal and poloidal magnetic fields.

From: Strong toroidal magnetic fields required by quiescent X-ray emission of magnetars

Extended Data Fig. 2

Panel A: surface temperature, Ts, maps obtained in 3D magneto-thermal simulations. We show NS with initial dipolar poloidal magnetic field B0 = 1 × 1014 G at age 10 kyr. Panels B, C, D: the soft X-ray light-curves expected for this thermal map at 10 kyr. Panel B shows k = 30 panel C shows k = 60 and panel D shows k = 90. Dotted black lines correspond to i = 30, solid blue lines correspond to i = 60 and red dashed lines correspond to i = 90.
