The Multi-INstrument Burst ARchive (MINBAR) is a database containing analyses of 7083 unique thermonuclear (type-I) X-ray bursts, from 85 burst sources, observed by the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE), BeppoSAX and INTEGRAL.

The paper accompanying the sample has been published by ApJS (Galloway et al. 2020, ApJS 249, 32) and the preprint is available at The database is available via the online collection at, or via the web interface at

Web interface documentation and developer tools

The web interface is built on Laurens Keek's Python class for the IDL database. The web interface software queries the raw IDL database files directly; links to the burst and observation pages are to be provided in this wiki, via the JavaScript-Editable extension to pmwiki, and the dygraphs plotting package
