Search of HMXBs in the Magellanic Clouds

The search targets were from the Magellanic Clouds High-Mass X-Ray Binaries Catalog (HEASARC), built from data from Liu et al. (2005)

The source XTE J0103-728 (on this list) was searched previously. The (null) result was presented in "Upper Limits on Pulsed Radio Emission from the 6.85 s X-Ray Pulsar XTE J0103-728 in the Small Magellanic Cloud" by F. Crawford et al., Astrophysical Journal, 696, 574 (2009).

These search results were presented in "Eight New Radio Pulsars in the Large Magellanic Cloud" by J. P. Ridley et al., Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 433, 138 (2013).
