Abstract:AbstractWe present the results of a search for strong single radio pulses emitted by magnetars and for FRB signals in the fields of magnetars observed at the Parkes radio telescope within the NAPA project P626. Unsurprisingly, given the short total observing time, no extragalacic FRB signal was found up to a DM of 3000 pc/cm3. Two strong pulses dispersed at the DM of the known radio magnetar J1550–5418 where found, one occurring at the same time of an X-ray burst. This result is potentially interesting in the …
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.
