We present a large survey of giant pulses from the Crab Pulsar as observed with the first station of the Long Wavelength Array. Automated methods for detecting giant pulses at low frequencies where scattering becomes prevalent are also explored. More than 1400 pulses were detected across four frequency bands between 20 - 84 MHz over a seven month period beginning in 2013, with additional followup observations in late 2014 and early 2015. A handful of these pulses were detected simultaneously…

Narrow-band giant pulses from the Crab pulsar
We used a new spectral-fitting technique to identify a subpopulation of 6 narrow-band giant pulses from the Crab pulsar out of a total of 1578. These giant pulses were detected in 77 min of
Spectral Flattening of Crab Giant Pulses at Low Frequencies
Abstract The frequency dependence of normal pulsar radio emission is typically observed to be a power law, with some indications of a flattening or turnover at low frequencies (≲ 100 MHz). The
Kinematics of Crab Giant Pulses
The Crab Pulsar’s radio emission is unusual, consisting predominantly of giant pulses, with durations of about a microsecond but structure down to the nanosecond level, and brightness temperatures of
Spectral Flattening at Low Frequencies in Crab Giant Pulses
We report on simultaneous wideband observations of Crab giant pulses with the Parkes radio telescope and the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA). The observations were conducted simultaneously at 732 and
Probing Pulsar Scattering between 120 and 280 MHz with the MWA
The high sensitivity and wide frequency coverage of the Murchison Widefield Array allow for the measurement of the spectral scaling of the pulsar scattering timescale, $\alpha$, from a single
Detection of a Low-frequency Cosmic Radio Transient Using Two LWA Stations
We report the detection of a potential cosmic radio transient source using the two stations of the Long Wavelength Array. The transient was detected on 18 October 2017 08:47 UTC near the celestial
Pulsars with NenuFAR: Backend and pipelines
NenuFAR (New extension in Nan\c{c}ay upgrading LoFAR) is a new radio telescope developed and built on the site of the Nan\c{c}ay Radio Observatory. It is designed to observe the largely unexplored
Testing Einstein's weak equivalence principle with a 0.4-nanosecond giant pulse of the Crab pulsar
Einstein's weak equivalence principle (EEP) can be tested through the arrival time delay between photons with different frequencies. Assuming that the arrival time delay is solely caused by the
Prototype for pulsar observations at low radio frequencies using log-periodic dipole antennas
Abstract. A prototype for dedicated observations of pulsars and other astrophysical transients in the frequency range of 50 to 80 MHz has been recently commissioned in the Gauribidanur Radio
The Giant Radio Array for Neutrino Detection (GRAND): Science and design
The Giant Radio Array for Neutrino Detection (GRAND) is a planned large-scale observatory of ultra-high-energy (UHE) cosmic particles, with energies exceeding 108 GeV. Its goal is to solve the
