The 2015 hard-state only outburst of GS 1354-64.


Abstract (from CDS):

Since its outburst in 1997, GS 1354-64 stayed in quiescence. In 2015 June, renewed activity of GS 1354-64 was observed. Based on our analysis of energy spectra and timing properties obtained from Swift/X-ray telescope monitoring data, we found that GS 1354-64 stayed in the hard state during the entire outburst. Such a hard state only (or 'failed' outburst) has also been observed in 1997. In addition, we analysed an XMM-Newton observation taken on August 6th. We compared variability on long and short time-scales using covariance ratio and found that the ratio showed a decrease towards lower energies instead of the increase that has been found in other black hole X-ray binaries. There are now two sources (H1743-322 and GS 1354-64) that do not show an increase towards lower energies in their covariance ratio. Both sources have been observed during 'failed' outbursts and showed photon indices much harder than what is usually observed in black hole X-ray binaries.
