In science:

To achieve an order of magnitude increase in X-ray timing capabilities, a “next generation” X-ray timing mission will need a large area X-ray detector with an effective area equal to ten times that of RXTE, on the order of 6 m2 (Kaaret et al. 2001; Barret et al. 2001).
Relativistic Astrophysics Explorer
Our preliminary studies and also those done for the European Experiment for X-ray Timing and Relativistic Astrophysics (EXTRA) proposal (Barret 2001) show that p-i-n photodiode detectors can meet the scientific requirements of an X-ray timing mission.
Relativistic Astrophysics Explorer
We also agree with the conclusion reached by Barret et al. (2005) that the observational evidence against orbiting clumps as a possible explanation of the phenomenon of kHz QPO, seems to indicate that this phenomenon is probably caused by the accretion disk global oscillations7 .
Slim accretion disks around black holes
Given a triangulation ∆ with a dual 2-complex Γ(∆), the value of the Feynman graph Γ is precisely the Barret-Crane partition function over the triangulation ∆.
The century of the incomplete revolution: searching for general relativistic quantum field theory
The luminosity of this high-energy tail appears to be anti-correlated with the soft X-ray luminosity (Barret & Vedrenne 1994, Tavani & Liang 1996).
Monte-Carlo simulations of thermal/nonthermal radiation from a neutron-star magnetospheric accretion shell
Menou & McClintock (2000) also show that the hard X-ray component observed in Cen X-4 and in neutronstar LMXBTs (Barret & Vedrenne 1994) cannot be only the result of Compton up-scattering in an ADAF.

Bringing closure to microlensing mass measurement
The spectra become neither as hard nor as soft as in black holes, but weak hard components are sometimes seen and similarly explained by Comptonization (e.g., Barret & Vedrenne 1994 , di Salvo & Stella 2002).
A review of rapid X-ray variability in X-ray binaries
With future large-area timing instrumentation (∼10 m2 , e.g., XEUS, see Barret 2004, or a dedicated timing array) the predicted patterns of weak sidebands and harmonics (“fingerprints”) of the variability phenomena would be mapped out as a spectrum of interrelated frequencies.

Wavelet analysis: a new significance test for signals dominated by intrinsic red-noise variability
The mass is constrained on the basis that the observed frequency corresponds to the frequency at innermost stable circular orbit (Barret, Olive and Miller 2005, Belloni, Mendez and Homman 2007, van der Klis 2004).
Observational Tests of Neutron Star Relativistic Mean Field Equations of State
Also the result for the source 4U 1636–536 that gives M = (1.9 − 2.1) M⊙ as proposed by Barret, Olive and Miller (2005) should be used rather as an upper limit of the neutron star mass than as its estimate, see, e.g.
