We report the discovery of the pulsars PSR J0030+0451, PSR J0711+0931, and PSR J1313+0931 that were found in a search of 470 square degrees at 430 MHz using the 305 m Arecibo telescope. The search has an estimated sensitivity for long-period, low dispersion measure, low zenith angle, and high Galactic latitude pulsars of ~1 mJy, comparable to previous Arecibo searches. Spin and astrometric parameters for the three pulsars are presented along with polarimetry at 430 MHz. PSR J0030+0451, a nearby…

Arecibo timing and single‐pulse observations of 17 pulsars
We report on timing and single-pulse observations of 17 pulsars discovered at the Arecibo Observatory. The highlights of our sample are the recycled pulsars J1829+2456, J1944+0907 and the drifting
The Arecibo 430 MHz Intermediate Galactic Latitude Survey: Discovery of Nine Radio Pulsars
We have used the Arecibo Radio Telescope to search for millisecond pulsars in two intermediate Galactic latitude regions (7° < |b| < 20°) accessible to this telescope. For these latitudes the useful
PSR J1740+1000: A Young Pulsar Well Out of the Galactic Plane
We discuss PSR?J1740+1000, one of five pulsars recently discovered in a search of 470 deg2 at 430 MHz during the upgrade of the 305 m Arecibo Telescope. The period P = 154 ms and period derivative =
PSR J1453+1902 and the radio luminosities of solitary versus binary millisecond pulsars
We present 3 yr of timing observations for PSR J1453+1902, a 5.79-ms pulsar discovered during a 430-MHz drift-scan survey with the Arecibo telescope. Our observations show that PSR J1453+1902 is
The Parallax and Proper Motion of PSR J0030+0451
We report the parallax and proper motion of millisecond pulsar J0030+0451, one of 13 known isolated millisecond pulsars in the disk of the Galaxy. We obtained more than 6 years of monthly data from
Arecibo Timing and Single-Pulse Observations of Eighteen Pulsars
We present new results of timing and single-pulse measurements for 18 radio pulsars discovered in 1993-1997 by the Penn State/Naval Research Laboratory declination-strip survey conducted with the 305
Deep BVR imaging of the field of the millisecond pulsar PSR J0030+0451 with the VLT
We report on deep BVR-imaging of the field of the nearby millisecond pulsar PSR J0030+0451 obtained with the ESO/VLT/FORS2. We do not detect any optical counterpart down to B > 27.3, V > 27. 0a ndR >
The Swinburne intermediate-latitude pulsar survey
We have conducted a survey of intermediate Galactic latitudes using the 13-beam 21-cm multibeam receiver of the Parkes 64-m radio telescope. The survey covered the region enclosed by 5°<|b|<15° and
Variability of 19 Millisecond Pulsars in 47 Tucanae with Chandra HRC-S
We present results from our 830 ks observation of the globular cluster 47 Tucanae with the Chandra X-ray Observatory's High Resolution Camera-S. We limit our analysis here to the 19 previously known,
A NICER View of PSR J0030+0451: Evidence for a Global-scale Multipolar Magnetic Field
Recent modeling of NICER observations of thermal X-ray pulsations from the surface of the isolated millisecond pulsar PSR J0030+0451 suggests that the hot emitting regions on the pulsar's surface are


A Survey for Millisecond Pulsars
We have searched 960 square degrees of sky for radio pulsars, using the 305 m telescope at Arecibo, Puerto Rico. The 430 MHz survey reached a limiting sensitivity for slow pulsars of 0.7 mJy using a
The Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey: PSR J1811-1736, a Pulsar in a Highly Eccentric Binary System
We are undertaking a high-frequency survey of the Galactic plane for radio pulsars, using the 13-element multibeam receiver on the 64-m Parkes radio telescope. We describe briefly the survey system
Interstellar Scintillation of Pulsar B0809+74
Weak interstellar scintillations of pulsar B0809+74 were observed at two epochs using a 30 m EISCAT antenna at 933 MHz. These have been used to constrain the spectrum, the distribution, and the
New millisecond pulsar in a binary system
