We report the discovery of PSR J1101−6101, a 62.8 ms pulsar in IGR J11014−6103, a hard X-ray source with a jet and a cometary tail that strongly suggests it is moving away from the center of the supernova remnant (SNR) MSH 11−61A at v > 1000 km s−1. Two XMM-Newton observations were obtained with the EPIC pn in small window mode, resulting in the measurement of its spin-down luminosity erg s−1, characteristic age τc = 116 kyr, and surface magnetic field strength Bs = 7.4 × 1011 G. In comparison… 

Closer view of the IGR J11014-6103 outflows

IGR J11014-6103 (also known as the Lighthouse Nebula) is composed of a bow-shock pulsar wind nebula (PWN) and large-scale X-ray jet-like features, all powered by PSR J1101-6101. Previous observations

We analyzed two Chandra observations of PSR J2055+2539 for a total integration time of ∼130 ks to measure the proper motion and study the two elongated nebular features of this source. We did not

The soft γ-ray pulsar population: a high-energy overview

At high-energy gamma-rays (>100 MeV) the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on the Fermi satellite already detected more than 145 rotation-powered pulsars (RPPs), while the number of pulsars seen at soft

Pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe) are suggested to be acceleration sites of cosmic rays in the Galaxy. While the magnetic field plays an important role in the acceleration process, previous observations of

X-ray counterpart candidates for six new γ-ray pulsars

Using archival X-ray data we have found point-like X-ray counterpart candidates positionally coincident with six $\gamma$-ray pulsars discovered recently in the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope data

Signatures of extended radio emission from escaping electrons in the Lighthouse Nebula

Several supersonic runaway pulsar wind nebulae (sPWNe) with jet-like extended structures have been recently discovered in X-rays. If these structures are the product of electrons escaping the system

On the origin of jet-like features in bow shock pulsar wind nebulae

Bow shock pulsar wind nebulae are a large class of non-thermal synchrotron sources associated to old pulsars that have emerged from their parent supernova remnant and are directly interacting with

Natural mechanism for the generation and emission of extreme energy particles

The discovery, in 2013, of the velocity differential spectralshift mechanism is revolutionizing astrophysics/cosmology. For instance, it provides for a superior understanding of the cosmic redshift.
