Abstract (from CDS):

We present here the timing and spectral analysis of the accreting millisecond pulsar (AMXP) SwiftJ1756.9-2508 during its recent outburst in 2018 using Swift and NUSTAR observations. The simultaneous fitting of the Swift and NUSTAR spectra indicates that the source was in the hard state with a cut-off energy of about 74.58 keV. We also study in detail the pulse profile of the AMXP and its dependence on energy. The colour-colour diagram of the source is different from those previously reported. We performed phase- and time-resolved spectral analysis using NUSTAR data. Pulse phase-resolved spectra were fitted with a power-law model and significant changes in the spectral parameters with pulse phase were observed. The orbital phase and time-resolved spectra were fitted with a cut-off power-law model. The column density and photon index obtained from orbital phase spectral analysis were found to show some anticorrelation with the flux. Through time-resolved spectral analysis, we observed that the spectral parameters show positive correlation with each other and with the flux. We do not observe a softening of the spectrum with time. No emission lines or Compton bump were observed in the spectrum of the AMXP.
