Parkes observations for project P786 semester 2011APRS


We have discovered 44 RRATs (eRRATic neutron stars) in archival Parkes pulsar surveys. Additionally the ongoing HTRU survey has identified 10s of excellent new candidates. These RRATs are neutron stars which emit sporadic radio bursts. Constraining and characterising the RRAT population is the motive for our work. These follow-up observations will ... more

P786 - Transient Radio Neutron Stars


In 2006 a number of neutron stars were discovered by astronomers. These new sources - dubbed RRATs (eRRATic neutron stars) were seen to emit bursts of radio emission every few minutes. Neutron stars are the remnants of stellar explosions (supernovae) which occur in massive stars once they have reached the ends of their lives. The discovery of such ... more
