PSR 1259-63 : a binary radio pulsar with a Be star companion
The discovery of the first known radio pulsar with a massive, nondegenerate companion is reported. PSR 1259-63, found during a large-scale high-frequency survey of the southern Galactic plane, has a
The large-scale magnetic field of our Galaxy can be probed in three dimensions using Faraday rotation of pulsar
SNR G320.4–01.2 and PSR B1509–58: new radio observations of a complex interacting system
We describe radio continuum and spectral-line observations of the source G320.4–01.2 (MSH 15–52) and the coincident young pulsar B1509–58 made with the Australia Telescope Compact Array. Based on a
Pulsar rotation measures and the magnetic structure of our Galaxy
We have obtained 63 rotation measures (RMs) from polarization observations of southern pulsars, of which 54 are new measurements and three are varied from previous values. The new pulsar RM data at
Pulsar nulling and mode changing
With its relatively long observation time per pointing, the Parkes multibeam survey was effective in detecting nulling pulsars. We have made 2-h observations of 23 pulsars which showed evidence for
Radio observations of PSR B1259-63 through the 2004 periastron passage
We report here on extensive radio observations of the binary system containing PSR B1259-63 and the Be star SS 2883, made around the time of the 2004 periastron. This is the fourth periastron to have
Pulsar Rotation Measures and Large-scale Magnetic Field Reversals in the Galactic Disk
We present the measurements of Faraday rotation for 477 pulsars observed by the Parkes 64-m radio telescope and the Green Bank 100-m radio telescope. Using these results along with previous
The Spatial Energy Spectrum of Magnetic Fields in Our Galaxy
Interstellar magnetic fields exist over a broad range of spatial scales, extending from large Galactic scales (~10 kpc) down to very small dissipative scales (1 pc). In this paper, we use a set of
