Do neutron stars emit stellar flares?

Since stellar flares are formed from the magnetic energy of a star, is it probable to assume that neutron stars can emit stellar flares as well? If so, how would the super fluid material of the star behave? Would there be anyway to observe such phenomena?

• Please don't think I am being pedantic here, I am not, but solar flares are from our sun, just in case anybody gets the wrong idea about your question. Best of luck with it. – user81619 Sep 19 '15 at 0:46
• Ah yes, that makes sense. Solar, sun. I guess the more proper term would be stellar flare. I will edit appropriately. Thank you. – Neuromeda Sep 19 '15 at 0:48
• Outside my ken, but I think that en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starquake_(astrophysics) may be relevant. – dmckee Sep 19 '15 at 1:07
• That's a very interesting question. I'm curious if white dwarfs do as well. Stellar Flares/coronal mass ejections are essentially magnetic storms overpowering the gravitational attraction. My guess would be that magnetism can't do that on the surface of a Neutron star so there's no real "mass ejection", but it's just a guess and, maybe they do. They probably have enormous and Magnetospheres though. – userLTK Sep 19 '15 at 3:52
• Just to add, the surface of the Neutron-star might not be superfluid at all, that's probably on the inside. The outer shell of the star is very dense/compact matter that might kind of Iron rich perhaps with some super-heavy elements. The mostly neutron part is inside, similar to the mantle in earth. Neutron stars likely have layers. – userLTK Sep 19 '15 at 4:04

It is thought that these objects have extremely strong fields of up to $10^{11}$ T, which is produced during a core collapse supernova when some sort of dynamo action augments the usual field amplification by flux conservation.
