We report the discovery of nine previously unknown gamma-ray pulsars in a blind search of data from the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT). The pulsars were found with a novel hierarchical search method originally developed for detecting continuous gravitational waves from rapidly rotating neutron stars. Designed to find isolated pulsars spinning at up to kHz frequencies, the new method is computationally efficient and incorporates several advances, including a metric-based gridding of the search…

Binary Millisecond Pulsar Discovery via Gamma-Ray Pulsations
TLDR
A computing-intensive blind search of gamma-ray data from the Fermi Large Area Telescope detected a 2.5-millisecond pulsar, PSR J1311−3430, which unambiguously explains a formerly unidentified Gamma-ray source that had been a decade-long enigma, confirming previous conjectures.

Einstein@Home discovers a radio-quiet gamma-ray millisecond pulsar
TLDR
A citizen science project discovers a new type of gamma-ray millisecond pulsar with no detectable radio pulsations, and finds two isolated MSPs, one of which is the only known rotation-powered MSP to remain undetected in radio observations.
