Parkes observations for project P874 semester 2014APRS_BPSR_01


We propose to perform a directed search for a pulsed radio-emitting counterpart to the rotation-powered 206-ms X-ray pulsar PSR J1640-4631, recently discovered with the NuSTAR X-ray telescope. This source has a very large spin-down rate, and hence is an excellent and rare candidate for the measurement of the source's “braking index,” a... more

P874 - Detecting and timing a pulsed radio counterpart to the recently discovered high magnetic field X-ray pulsar PSR J1640-4631


Pulsars are rapidly rotating neutron star remnants of supernova explosions, spinning on their axes approximately once every second. Shortly after they are formed, pulsars are typically very energetic, and lose rotational energy at a fast rate. A newly discovered young pulsar, called PSR J1640-4631, was discovered by the NuSTAR X-ray space telesco... more
