Abstract:The observed polarization of radio pulsars involves several peculiar effects, such as comparable amount of orthogonal polarization modes (OPMs) which often bear the same handedness of circular polarisation V. In the average profiles of B1913+16 and B1933+16, orthogonal jumps of polarization angle (PA) are observed to occur at the maximum V, instead of V = 0. High levels of V are also observed in core components (eg. in B1237+25), where they are accompanied by strong distortions of PA from the rotating vector m… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
