Abstract : During the last few years, a large number of faint X-ray pulsators have been discovered having periodicity ranging from a few seconds to over a thousand seconds. This class of objects includes HMXBs, CVs and few pulsators with unknown nature. In this work, we present the spectroscopic study of 5 faint X-ray pulsators (CXOU J005758.4-722229, CXOU J163855.1-470145, CXO J184441.7-030549, CXOU J111133.7-603723 and CXOU J112347.4-591834), for which large number of Chandra and XMM-Newton observations were available. Spectra of all the sources have been extracted in 0.5-10.0 keV energy band. The best fit spectral model consists of absorbed power-law model. Iron emission line was detected in spectrum of CXOU J111133.7-603723. We also discuss the pulse profiles analysis of some of the sources.
