The fast radio burst (FRB) population is observationally divided into sources that have been observed to repeat and those that have not. There is tentative evidence that the bursts from repeating sources have different properties than the non-repeating ones. In order to determine the occurrence rate of repeating sources and characterise the nature of repeat emission, we have been conducting sensitive searches for repetitions from bursts detected with the Australian Square Kilometre Array…

Microsecond polarimetry of the repeating FRB 20180916B
Fast radio bursts (FRBs) exhibit a wide variety of spectral, temporal and polarimetric properties, which can unveil clues into their emission physics and propagation effects in the local medium.

A Decade and a Half of Fast Radio Burst Observations
Fast radio bursts (FRBs) have a story which has been told and retold many times over the past few years as they have sparked excitement and controversy since their pioneering discovery in 2007. The
A Matched Survey for the Enigmatic Low Radio Frequency Transient ILT J225347+862146
Discovered in 2011 with LOFAR, the 15 Jy low-frequency radio transient ILT J225347+862146 heralds a potentially prolific population of radio transients at <100 MHz. However, subsequent transient
Multiband Detection of Repeating FRB 20180916B
We present a multiband study of FRB 20180916B, a repeating source with a 16.3 day periodicity. We report the detection of four, one, and seven bursts from observations spanning 3 days using the
On the Fast Radio Burst and Persistent Radio Source Populations
The first fast radio burst (FRB) to be precisely localized was associated with a luminous persistent radio source (PRS). Recently, a second FRB/PRS association was discovered for another repeating
A Toy Model for the Time–Frequency Structure of Fast Radio Bursts: Implications for the CHIME/FRB Burst Dichotomy
We introduce a toy model for the time–frequency structure of fast radio bursts, in which the observed emission is produced as a narrowly peaked intrinsic spectral energy distribution sweeps down in
Fast radio bursts at the dawn of the 2020s
Since the discovery of the first fast radio burst (FRB) in 2007, and their confirmation as an abundant extragalactic population in 2013, the study of these sources has expanded at an incredible rate.


A bright millisecond-duration radio burst from a Galactic magnetar.
The detection of an extremely intense radio burst from the Galactic magnetar SGR 1935+2154 using the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) FRB project implies a burst energy at 400 to 800 megahertz of approximately 3 × 1034 erg, which is three orders of magnitude higher than the burst energy of any radio-emitting magnetar detected thus far.
A census of baryons in the Universe from localized fast radio bursts
The baryon density determined along the lines of sight to localized fast radio bursts is consistent with that determined from the cosmic microwave background and required by Big Bang nucleosynthesis.
High time resolution and polarization properties of ASKAP-localized fast radio bursts
Combining high time and frequency resolution full-polarisation spectra of Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) with knowledge of their host galaxy properties provides an opportunity to study both the emission

The dispersion–brightness relation for fast radio bursts from a wide-field survey
A large-scale survey of fast radio bursts—short pulses of radio waves that seem to come from cosmological distances—finds 20 events, including both the nearest and the most energetic bursts observed so far, and demonstrates that there is a relationship between burst dispersion and brightness.
