Abstract (from CDS):

We present a systematic analysis of all the BeppoSAX data of the soft gamma-ray repeater SGR 1900+14: these observations allowed us to study the long term properties of the source quiescent emission. In the observation carried out before the 1998 giant flare the spectrum in the 0.8-10keV energy range was harder and there was evidence for a 20-150keV emission, possibly associated with SGR 1900+14. This possible hard tail, if compared with the recent INTEGRAL detection of SGR 1900+14, has a harder spectrum (power-law photon index ∼1.6 versus ∼3) and a 20-100keV flux ∼4 times larger. In the last BeppoSAX observation (April 2002), while the source was entering the long quiescent period that lasted until 2006, the 2-10keV flux was ∼25% below the historical level. We also studied in detail the spectral evolution during the 2001 flare afterglow. This was characterized by a softening that can be interpreted in terms of a cooling blackbody-like component.
