Context. We have observed the Crab Pulsar in the optical with S-Cam, an instrument based on Superconducting Tunneling Junctions ( STJs) with μs time resolution. Aims. Our aim was to study the delay between the radio and optical pu lse. Methods. The Crab Pulsar was observed three times over a time span of al m st 7 years, on two di fferent locations, using three di fferent versions of the instrument, and using two di fferent GPS units. Results. We consistently find that the optical peak leads… CONTINUE READING
