Abstract We present a brief review of observational manifestations of pulsars with giant pulses radio emission, based on the survey of the main properties of known pulsars with giant pulses, including our detection of 4 new pulsars with giant pulses.  

Detection of the new rotating radio transient pulsar PSR J2225+35

We have detected the new pulsar PSR J2225+35, which displays the properties of the new class of radio sources “Rotating Radio Transients” (RRATs). RRATs are distinguished by isolated bursts of radio

On High Brightness Temperature of Pulsar Giant Pulses

A wide range of events observed at the giant pulses (high energy density, observed localization of giant pulses GPs relative to the average pulse, fine structure of GPs with duration up to some

On generation of Crab giant pulses

We propose that Crab giant pulses are generated on closed magnetic field lines near the light cylinder via anomalous cyclotron resonance on the ordinary mode. Waves are generated in a set of fine,

Coherent Emission in Pulsars, Magnetars, and Fast Radio Bursts: Reconnection-driven Free Electron Laser

We develop a model of the generation of coherent radio emission in the Crab pulsar, magnetars, and fast radio bursts (FRBs). Emission is produced by a reconnection-generated beam of particles via a


No apparent correlation was found between giant pulses (GPs) and X-ray photons from the Crab pulsar during 5.4 hr of simultaneous observations with the Green Bank Telescope at 1.5 GHz and Chandra

A fast radio burst associated with a Galactic magnetar.

The discovery of FRB 200428 implies that active magnetars such as SGR 1935+2154 can produce FRBs at extragalactic distances, and favours emission models that describe synchrotron masers or electromagnetic pulses powered by magnetar bursts and giant flares.

Pulsar giant pulse: Coherent instability near light cylinder

Giant pulses (GPs) are extremely bright individual pulses of radio pulsar. In microbursts of Crab pulsar, which is an active GP emitter, zebra-pattern-like spectral structures are observed, which are

Plasma processes in pulsar environments

The aim of this thesis is to study coherent plasma effects and collective plasma processes in pulsar environments. Pulsars are one of the most enigmatic objects in the universe. Formed in supernova

Galactic Radio Explorer: An All-sky Monitor for Bright Radio Bursts

We present the Galactic Radio Explorer (GReX), an all-sky monitor to probe the brightest bursts in the radio sky. Building on the success of STARE2, we will search for fast radio bursts emitted from

Anomalous frequency dependence of scattering of the radio emission from the Crab pulsar

The frequency dependence of scattering of the radio emission from the Crab pulsar at the low frequencies 111, 63, and 44 MHz has been measured and analyzed during sporadic enhancements of scattering



Giant Pulses of Pulsars Radio Emission

We present a brief review of observational manifestations of pulsars with giant pulses radio emission, based on the survey of the main properties of known pulsars with giant pulses, including our

Giant Pulses from the Millisecond Pulsar B1821–24

We have carried out a survey for "giant pulses" in five millisecond pulsars. We detect individual pulses from the high- pulsar B1821-24 with energies exceeding 50 times the mean pulse energy. These

Nanosecond radio bursts from strong plasma turbulence in the Crab pulsar

The discovery of isolated, highly polarized, two-nanosecond subpulses within the giant radio pulses from the Crab pulsar is reported, making them by far the smallest objects ever detected and resolved outside the Solar System, and the brightest transient radio sources in the sky.

Observational Manifestations of Young Neutron Stars: Spin-powered Pulsars

The largest number of known young neutron stars are observed as spin-powered pulsars. While the majority of those are detected at radio frequencies, an increasing number can be studied at other parts

Detection of giant pulses from the pulsar PSR B0031-07

Giant pulses have been detected from the pulsar PSR B0031-07. A pulse with an intensity higher than that of the average pulse by a factor of 50 or more is encountered approximately once per 300

Angular beaming and giant subpulses in the Crab pulsar

We propose that the extremely high brightness of the giant ultra-short subpulses observed in the Crab pulsar is consistent with the angular beaming due to relativistic motion of radiating sources

Detection of giant pulses in pulsar PSR J1752+2359

We report the detection of Giant Pulses (GPs) in the pulsar PSR J1752+2359. About one pulse in 270 has a peak flux density more than 40 times the peak flux density of an average pulse (AP), and the

On the origin of giant pulses in radio pulsars

Induced Compton scattering of radio emission off the particles of the ultrarelativistic highly magnetized plasma of pulsar magnetosphere is considered. The scattering between the photon beams of

Detection of giant pulses from the pulsar PSR B1112+50

We detected giant pulses from the pulsar PSR B1112+50. A pulse with an intensity that is a factor of 30 or more higher than the intensity of the average pulse is encountered approximately once in 150

Giant Pulses from PSR B0540–69 in the Large Magellanic Cloud

We report the discovery of the first giant pulses from an extragalactic radio pulsar. Observations of PSR B0540-69 in the Large Magellanic Cloud made with the Parkes radio telescope at 1.38 GHz show
