Abstract

We present the high resolution spectrum of the isolated neutron star RX J0720.4-3125, obtained with the Reflection Grating Spectrometer on XMM-Newton, complemented with the broad band spectrum observed with the EPIC PN camera. The spectrum appears smooth, with no evidence for strong photospheric absorption or emission features. We briefly discuss the implications of our failure to detect structure in the spectrum.
