Parkes observations for project P885 semester 2019OCTS_13


We propose to observe the magnetars 1E 1547.0-5408 and PSR J1622-4950 approximately weekly, to track their rotation, flux density, and polarisation, as we have been doing through this project. Also, as of late 2018, XTE J1810-197 is again a radio magnetar after 10 years dormant! Its chaotic rotation is better tracked in detail elsewhere, but w... 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
