Parkes observations for project P789 semester 2018OCTS_19
Recently there has been great success at Parkes discovering millisecond pulsars (MSPs), a class that includes some of the most interesting and scientifically valuable pulsars known. In the last few years, we have discovered more than 40 MSPs though the High Time Resolution Universe Survey (P630) and Fermi searches (P675/P814). Here we propose to ca... morerry out precision timing of these sources to fully exploit these discoveries. Additionally, we continue to study the most significant of the discoveries from the Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey (P268).
To maximise scientific impact, we have combined the most important sources from various previous proposals into this project, reducing total observation time required and easing the burden on the scheduler. less

P789 - Timing of Binary & Millisecond Pulsars Discovered at Parkes
Millisecond pulsars are neutron stars that weigh more than the sun, are smaller than your capital city and spin faster than your kitchen blender. Rotating once every few milliseconds, their lighthouse beam of radio waves is detected by the Parkes telescope as a train of pulses. By studying these amazing and exotic objects we hope to understand more... more about how these unusual stars came to be and probe the fundamental physics that governs the Universe. less
