Abstract:AbstractThe linearly polarized component of a pulsar signal at different radio frequencies can help to constrain the parallel component of the magnetic field along the line of sight. In this work we measured the polarimetric properties of the pulsars in the globular cluster 47 Tucanae and we report the Rotation Measure (RM) for 13 of them. A gradient in the RM values of the pulsars across the cluster is detected suggesting the presence of significant variations in the magnetic field across the very small angul…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific 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 researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
