Abstract

We present here our analysis of XMM-Newton observation of the Supernova Remnant (SNR) W44 and its associated pulsar PSR 1853+01. The remnant was observed with XMM-Newton in two separate observations for a total of 36 ks. We have also added to our analysis a short observation (7ks) centered on the pulsar position. Our observation was conducted with the MOS 1 in timing mode and the MOS2 and PN in full window mode. We present here the spectral analysis of all the full window mode data available. There is no trace of pulsed X-ray emission from PSR 1853+01 in the available data.
