Abstract:Slow pulsars show a great deal of qualitative and quantitative regularity in the structure of their radio emission beams as described by the core/double-cone model; however, millisecond pulsars (MSPs) have shown little. It is thus arresting to encounter a 2.7-s MSP with what appears to be a double-cone/core profile—and even more so to find that the arrangement of the cones around the core suggest aberration/retardation emission heights that are very reasonable. This and several other pulsars then represent rar… 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.
