Hi there. Just looking at an astophysics journal article in which they say the temperature of a pulsar is T=300eV..

My query is the following:

is T=300eV shorthand for say T=300ev/k (k=Boltzman constant) so the corresponding temperature in Kelvin is T=3.75X10^6K?

Right. There might be a factor of 2 somewhere, but I would not expect this.
