Parkes observations for project P982 semester 2018OCTS_08
We propose observations with the ultra-wide-bandwidth, low frequency receiver installed at the Parkes telescope to carry out the first coherently de-dispersed search for new pulsars in Southern globular clusters. We have chosen the three most likely clusters for new discoveries. We propose to observe each cluster from rise-to-set and will process ... morethe resulting data to study the known pulsars (allowing us, for the first time, to study the wide-band properties of their signal), whilst also looking for currently unknown pulsars. We note that the first black-hole--pulsar binary system is likely to be found in a globular cluster environment. less

P982 - The first coherently de-dispersed search for new pulsars in Southern globular clusters
One of the primary goals of modern-day pulsar astronomy is to discover a pulsar in orbit around a black hole. One likely place to look is in the centre of globular clusters where there are many stars. The Parkes telescope has recently been upgraded and our observations will provide the most sensitive search to date in Southern-sky clusters to look... more for new pulsars. less
