Parkes observations for project P942 semester 2017APRS_BPSR_02


We propose to search for giant pulses from pulsars in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Giant pulses have intensities of more than 10 times the pulsar mean intensity, and therefore enable us to identify distant pulsars in other galaxies. We will use the multibeam receiver to target a Crab-like pulsar, J0537-6910, in the LMC, which has only been ide... more

P942 - Searching for giant pulses from pulsars in the Large Magellanic Cloud


Pulsars are extremely compact stars that radiate periodic signals. The periodic signals from pulsars can be used to detect gravitational waves and study the interstellar medium. We are interested in searching for pulsars in other galaxies, such as the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), which is 158,200 light years away from us. Because pulsars in the LM... more
