Abstract: The Crab pulsar has striking radio emission properties, with the two dominant pulse components -the main pulse and the interpulse -consisting entirely of giant pulses. The emission is scattered in both the Crab nebula and the interstellar medium, causing multi-path propagation and thus scintillation. We study the scintillation of the Crab's giant pulses using phased Westerbork data at 1668 MHz. From correlations of the giant pulse spectra, we find that the main pulse and the interpulse are significantly offse…
