Parkes observations for project P1004 semester 2019APRS_01
A fundamental property of any astronomical source is its flux density. The new Parkes ultra-widebandwidth receiver is ideal for studying pulsar profiles and measuring flux densities over wide bands. We have identified pulsars that can be observed by Parkes, but have no flux density measurements in the catalogue. Our proposal is simple - we wish t... moreo measure the pulsar flux densities, publish them and then later use those measurements to study pulsar populations, luminosities and to aid planning new pulsar surveys and commissioning activities. less

P1004 - Wide-band receiver observations of bright pulsars: Flux density measurements
One of the first questions asked about any astronomical source is "how bright is the source?". Surprisingly the catalogue of pulsars contains 505 pulsars that the Parkes telescope can observe, but nobody has answered this basic and fundamental question. Over the next few semesters we wish to make the measurements required to "fix" the pulsar cata... morelogue and the new receiver installed at the Parkes telescope is ideal for this work. less
