The discovery of a repeating fast radio burst (FRB) source1,2, FRB 121102, eliminated models involving cataclysmic events for this source. No other repeating FRB has hitherto been detected despite many recent discoveries and follow-ups3–5, suggesting that repeaters may be rare in the FRB population. Here we report the detection of six repeat bursts from FRB 180814.J0422+73, one of the 13 FRBs detected6 by the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) FRB project7 during its pre… 

CHIME/FRB Discovery of Eight New Repeating Fast Radio Burst Sources

We report on the discovery of eight repeating fast radio burst (FRB) sources found using the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) telescope. These sources span a dispersion measure

Nine New Repeating Fast Radio Burst Sources from CHIME/FRB

We report on the discovery and analysis of bursts from nine new repeating fast radio burst (FRB) sources found using the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) telescope. These

The First CHIME/FRB Fast Radio Burst Catalog

We present a catalog of 536 fast radio bursts (FRBs) detected by the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment Fast Radio Burst (CHIME/FRB) Project between 400 and 800 MHz from 2018 July 25 to

A Sudden Period of High Activity from Repeating Fast Radio Burst 20201124A

The repeating FRB 20201124A was first discovered by CHIME/FRB in November of 2020, after which it was seen to repeat a few times over several months. It entered a period of high activity in April of

The Low Frequency Perspective on Fast Radio Bursts

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) represent one of the most exciting astrophysical discoveries of the recent past. The study of their low-frequency emission, which was only effectively picked up about ten

A Fast Radio Burst Discovered in FAST Drift Scan Survey

We report the discovery of a highly dispersed fast radio burst (FRB), FRB 181123, from an analysis of ∼1500 hr of drift scan survey data taken using the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio

Periodic Fast Radio Bursts from Young Neutron Stars

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are highly energetic radio pulses from cosmological origins. Despite an abundance of detections, their nature remains elusive. At least a subset of FRBs is expected to

A Sample of Low-energy Bursts from FRB 121102

We present 41 bursts from the first repeating fast radio burst (FRB) discovered (FRB 121102). A deep search has allowed us to probe unprecedentedly low burst energies during two consecutive

A targeted search for repeating fast radio bursts associated with gamma-ray bursts

The origin of fast radio bursts (FRBs) still remains a mystery, even with the increased number of discoveries in the last three years. Growing evidence suggests that some FRBs may originate from

The Rarity of Repeating Fast Radio Bursts from Binary Neutron Star Mergers

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are extragalactic, bright pulses of emission at radio frequencies with millisecond durations. Observationally, FRBs can be divided into two classes, repeating FRBs and
