X-Ray Light Curve of GRO J1744-28 observed with RXTE/PCA on day 168 of 1996 (June 16)
X-ray light curve of GRO J1744-28 observed with RXTE/PCA. The source was observed 5 times on June 16 1996 (UT). Each observation was done at #1: 03:18-03:32, #2: 06:34-06:59, #3: 08:10-08:42, #4: 09:46-10:24, and #5: 11:22-12:07, respectively. Bin width of each data is 1 second. These observation was done with 5 PCU's. These light curves include background counts of roughly 100-150 counts/sec.
During these observations, the PCA detected many small bursts but no large ones. Small bursts were observed in previous observations but large ones were also observed at those times.

Power Spectrum of GRO J1744-28 on day 168 (June 16, 1996)
J1744_d168_power2 image: Power spectrum of GRO J1744-28 observed with RXTE/PCA on day 168 (June 16, 1996).
Power spectrum of GRO J1744-28 observed with RXTE/PCA on day 168 (June 16, 1996). This power spectrum is an ensemble average of 16 spectra, each of which is calculated from 128 seconds continuous data in 0.125 second bin. X-axis represents the wave number (WN). Frequency of each WN is given as WN/128 (Hz). Peak at WN=274 (2.14Hz) corresponds to the coherent pulsation.
