  • A model of fast radio bursts, which enlists young, short period extragalactic magnetars satisfying B/P > 2 × 1016 G s−1 (1 G = 1 statvolt cm−1) as the source, is proposed. When the parallel component of the surface electric field (under the scenario of a vacuum magnetosphere) of such pulsars approaches 5% of the critical field , in strength, the field can readily decay via the Schwinger mechanism into electron–positron pairs, the back reaction of which causes to oscillate on a characteristic… CONTINUE READING
