Abstract

The Neutron star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER) has been observing a number ofX-ray sources since July 2017 from the International Space Station. With both high timingand good energy resolutions, the soft X-ray coverage of NICER is particularly well-suitedfor investigating magnetically-powered isolated neutron stars, rotation-powered millisecondpulsars, X-ray pulsars, and X-ray bursters, as well as other accreting compact objects likeblack holes and white dwarfs. The talk will present the NICER payload and the main resultsobtained during the first two years of the mission for studies of neutron star energetics,dynamics, and structure. A particular emphasis will be given on observations of X-raybursts explained as thermonuclear explosions on the surface of accreting neutron stars inlow-mass X-ray binaries.
