[41.07] HST/NICMOS observations of PSR 0656+14 and Geminga

We present results of March 1998 NICMOS observations of two middle-aged pulsars, PSR 0656+14 and Geminga, with three and two broad-band filters, respectively. The infrared fluxes of both objects grow with increasing wavelength. Most likely they are generated in the pulsars' magnetospheres. Composite UV/optical/IR spectral fluxes of the pulsars demonstrate that the radiation in this wavelength range cannot be described by a simple one-component model.
