Strangeon star atmosphere model.
The strangeon star atmosphere (ssa) model describes the radiation from
interstellar medium accreted plasma atmosphere on a strangeon star
surface and its spectrum. The ssa could simply be regarded as the
upper layer of a normal neutron star because the radiation from
strangeon matter can be neglected (Wang et al. 2017, 1705.03763). The atmosphere
is in radiative, thermal equilibrium and two-temperature. The ssa
spectrum is based on bremsstrahlung from an extremely thin hydrogen
plasma. More details of the ssa model are described in Wang et al.
(2017, ApJ, 837, 81).
