Radio pulsar PSR J1028−5819 was recently discovered in a high-frequency search (at 3.1 GHz) in the error circle of the Energetic Gamma-Ray Experiment Telescope (EGRET) source 3EG J1027−5817. The spin-down power of this young pulsar is great enough to make it very likely the counterpart for the EGRET source. We report here the discovery of γ-ray pulsations from PSR J1028−5819 in early observations by the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope. The γ-ray light curve… 

FERMI LARGE AREA TELESCOPE DETECTION OF PULSED γ-RAYS FROM THE VELA-LIKE PULSARS PSR J1048−5832 AND PSR J2229+6114

We report the detection of γ-ray pulsations (⩾0.1 GeV) from PSR J2229+6114 and PSR J1048−5832, the latter having been detected as a low-significance pulsar by EGRET. Data in the γ-ray band were

WIDE RADIO BEAMS FROM γ-RAY PULSARS

We investigate the radio and γ-ray beaming properties of normal and millisecond pulsars (MSPs) by selecting two samples from the known populations. The first, Sample G, contains pulsars which are

The dramatic increase in the number of known gamma-ray pulsars since the launch of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (formerly GLAST) offers the first opportunity to study a sizable population of

A Population of Gamma-Ray Millisecond Pulsars Seen with the Fermi Large Area Telescope

TLDR
Fermi Large Area Telescope data is searched for pulsations from all known millisecond pulsars outside of stellar clusters, finding gamma-ray pulsations for eight of them, suggesting that they share the same basic emission mechanism with standard gamma-Ray pulsars.
