PSR B0656+14’s high energy emission is consistent with that of combined magnetospheric and thermal (surface & polar cap) emission. Uncertainties with the radio-derived distance and X-ray instrumentation sensitivities complicate a definitive thermal characterisation however. A re-analysis of combined ROSAT/EUVE archival data in conjunction with integrated & phase-resolved optical photometry is shown to constrain this characterisation.
