Parkes observations for project P1016 semester 2019APRS_04
Understanding rotating radio transients (RRATs) has the potential to uproot our understanding of core-collapse supernovae and the overall evolution of neutron stars. Despite this, RRATs remain an enigma and has numerous potential and conflicting explanations in the literature. These observations will observe a sample of RRATs with the UWL receiver,... more in tandem with the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST), in order to directly test many of the competing theories that exist around RRATs and answer the question of where they fit amongst the overall population of neutron stars. less

P1016 - Instant GRRATificiation
Rotating radio transients, also known as RRATs, are an enigmatic class of spinning neutron star which occasionally emits bright flashes of light. Due to their intermittent nature, it is difficult to place RRATs amongst the larger population of rotating neutron stars and pulsars. Together with the world's largest radio telescope, FAST, this project ... morewill harness the power of the new UWL receiver on Parkes in order to study how light from these mysterious dead stars changes as a function of frequency and intensity. less
