We report on the discovery of a new fast radio burst (FRB), FRB 150215, with the Parkes radio telescope on 2015 February 15. The burst was detected in real time with a dispersion measure (DM) of 1105.6 +/‐ 0.8 pc cm(‐3), a pulse duration of 2.8(‐0.5)(+1.2) ms, and a measured peak flux density assuming that the burst was at beam centre of 0.7(‐0.1)(+0.2) Jy. The FRB originated at a Galactic longitude and latitude of 24.66 degrees, 5.28 degrees and 25 degrees away from the Galactic Center. The… 

Fast radio burst source properties from polarization measurements

Recent polarization measurements of fast radio bursts (FRBs) provide new insights on these enigmatic sources. We show that the nearly 100 per cent linear polarization and small variation of the

Probing the origin of extragalactic magnetic fields with Fast Radio Bursts

The joint analysis of the Dispersion and Faraday Rotation Measure from distant, polarised Fast Radio Bursts may be used to put constraints on the origin and distribution of extragalactic magnetic

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) with unknown origin emit a huge luminosity (about 1 Jy at 1 GHz) with a duration of milliseconds or less at extragalactic distances estimated from their large dispersion

Enhanced Rates of Fast Radio Bursts from Galaxy Clusters

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) have so far been detected serendipitously across the sky. We consider the possible enhancement in the FRB rate in the direction of galaxy clusters, and compare the predicted

A Search for the Host Galaxy of FRB 171020

We report on a search for the host galaxy of FRB 171020, the fast radio burst (FRB) with the smallest recorded dispersion measure (DM; DM = 114 pc cm−3) of our ongoing ASKAP survey. The low DM

We report on the polarization properties of two fast radio bursts (FRBs): 151230 and 160102 discovered in the SUrvey for Pulsars and Extragalactic Radio Bursts (SUPERB) at the Parkes radio telescope.

Host Galaxy Properties and Offset Distributions of Fast Radio Bursts: Implications for Their Progenitors

We present observations and detailed characterizations of five new host galaxies of fast radio bursts (FRBs) discovered with the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) and localized to

Prospects of detecting fast radio bursts using Indian radio telescopes

Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) are short duration highly energetic dispersed radio pulses. We developed a generic formalism (Bera et al.2016, MNRAS, 457, 2530) to estimate the FRB detection rate for any

A bright, high rotation-measure FRB that skewers the M33 halo

We report the detection of a bright fast radio burst, FRB\,191108, with Apertif on the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope (WSRT). The interferometer allows us to localise the FRB to a narrow

The host galaxy of a fast radio burst

The discovery of a fast radio burst is reported and the identification of a fading radio transient lasting ~6 days after the event, which is used to identify the host galaxy and measure the galaxy’s redshift, which provides a direct measurement of the cosmic density of ionized baryons in the intergalactic medium.
