Parkes observations for project P885 semester 2018APRS_02


We propose to observe PSR J1622-4950 and 1E1547.0-5408 weekly, two of three magnetars known to currently emit radio pulsations, to track their rotation, flux density, and polarisation. Less frequently we will monitor XTE J1810-197, which used to emit radio pulsations, to be on the lookout for its revival - as just happened with PSR J1622-4950,... more

P885 - Understanding the Remarkable Behaviour of Radio Magnetars


Neutron stars are extreme objects, the size of a city but containing the mass of the Sun. Pulsars are neutron stars with very strong magnetic fields that rotate rapidly and emit focused beams of radio waves that we may detect on Earth once with every turn of the star, in light-house-like fashion. While the typical pulsar has a magnetic field ... more
