Parkes observations for project P996 semester 2018OCTS_01


We propose to measure the polarisation of ~200 pulsars (~100 this semester) using the Ultra-Wideband Low (UWL) receiver to investigate the structure of the Galactic disk magnetic field in and between distant spiral arms. Previous Parkes pulsar observations have revealed field reversals in nearby arm and interarm regions. We wish to exploit the grea... more

P996 - Magnetic field reversals in distant spiral arms


The Parkes radio telescope has found nearly two-thirds of the known pulsars. These pulsars are widely distributed in our Galaxy, making them valuable probes of the Galactic interstellar medium. In particular, measurements of the polarisation of pulsar radio emission allows measurement of Faraday rotation in the interstellar medium and hence the str... more
