A rotating fan-beam radiation model for the pulse duration and frequency spectrum of pulsar radiation


The assumption of a rotating fan-beam of broadband RF radiation appears to fit the observed pulse length to period ratio and pulse amplitude statistics of some pulsars. Here an electromagnetic (EM) mechanism is proposed for the generation of the fan-beam. The radiation pattern is assumed to arise from coupled standing wave components at harmonics of the… (More)
