New pulsars detected in gamma-rays with the Fermi-LAT

  title={New pulsars detected in gamma-rays with the Fermi-LAT},

  journal={arXiv: High Energy Astrophysical Phenomena},
The Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) is a powerful pulsar detector, as demonstrated by the over one hundred objects in its second catalog of pulsars. Pass 8 is a new reconstruction and event selection strategy developed by the Fermi-LAT collaboration. Due to the increased acceptance at low energy, Pass 8 improves the pulsation detection sensitivity. Ten new pulsars rise above the 5 sigma threshold and are presented in this work, as well as one previously seen with the former Pass 7…

Searching a Thousand Radio Pulsars for Gamma-Ray Emission
Identifying as many gamma-ray pulsars as possible in the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) data helps test pulsar emission models by comparing predicted and observed properties for a large, varied
Gamma-ray pulsars with Fermi
In 8 years of operation, the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on the Fermi satellite has impacted our understanding of gamma-ray pulsars dramatically. The LAT now sees over two hundred pulsars: the largest
Radio pulsars with expected gamma radiation and gamma-ray pulsars as pulsating radio emitters
Pulsars play a crucial astrophysical role as highly energetic compact radio, X-ray and gamma-ray sources. Our previous works show that radio pulsars identified as pulsing gamma-ray sources by the
PSR J1906+0722: An Elusive Gamma-ray Pulsar
We report the discovery of PSR J1906+0722, a gamma-ray pulsar detected as part of a blind survey of unidentified Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) sources being carried out on the volunteer
The Fermi-LAT detection of magnetar-like pulsar PSR J1846-0258 at high-energy gamma-rays
We report the detection of the pulsed signal of the radio-quiet magnetar-like pulsar PSR J1846−0258 in the high-energy γ-ray data of the Fermi Large Area Telescope (Fermi LAT). We produced
Radio Follow-up on All Unassociated Gamma-Ray Sources from the Third Fermi Large Area Telescope Source Catalog
The third Fermi Large Area Telescope γ-ray source catalog (3FGL) contains over 1000 objects for which there is no known counterpart at other wavelengths. The physical origin of the γ-ray emission
Efficiency of Synchrotron Radiation from Rotation-powered Pulsars
Synchrotron radiation is widely considered to be the origin of the pulsed non-thermal emissions from rotation-powered pulsars in optical and X-ray bands. In this paper, we study the synchrotron
The ultracool helium-atmosphere white dwarf companion of PSR J0740+6620?
We report detection of the likely companion of the binary millisecond pulsar (MSP) J0740+6620 with the Gran Telescopio Canarias in the r′ and i′ bands. The position of the detected starlike source
A Multiwavelength Study of the γ-Ray Binary Candidate HESS J1832–093
A spectrum of its IR counterpart using Gemini/Flamingo is obtained, finding absorption lines that are usually seen in massive stars, in particular O stars, and a rather steep ATCA spectrum which prefers a gamma-ray binary over an AGN scenario is obtained.


Pulsar Timing for the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope
We describe a comprehensive pulsar monitoring campaign for the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on the {\em Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope} (formerly GLAST). The detection and study of pulsars in gamma
Six Faint Gamma-ray Pulsars Seen with the Fermi Large Area Telescope -- Towards a Sample Blending into the Background
Context: GeV gamma-ray pulsations from over 140 pulsars have been characterized using the Fermi Large Area Telescope, enabling improved understanding of the emission regions within the neutron star
We present a catalog of high-energy gamma-ray sources detected by the Large Area Telescope (LAT), the primary science instrument on the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (Fermi), during the first 11
Pulsar Timing with the Parkes Radio Telescope for the Fermi Mission
Abstract We report here on two years of timing of 168 pulsars using the Parkes radio telescope. The vast majority of these pulsars have spin-down luminosities in excess of 1034 erg s−1 and are prime
Discovery of two millisecond pulsars in Fermi sources with the Nancay Radio Telescope
We report the discovery of two millisecond pulsars in a search for radio pulsations at the positions of Fermi-Large Area Telescope sources with no previously known counterparts, using the Nançay
On the non-detection of γ-rays from energetic millisecond pulsars – dependence on viewing geometry
Millisecond pulsars (MSPs) and normal non-recycled pulsars are both detected in γ-rays. However, it appears that a much larger fraction of known energetic and nearby MSPs are detected in γ-rays, in
Fermi Large Area Telescope Third Source Catalog
We present the third Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) source catalog (3FGL) of sources in the 100MeV– 300 GeV range. Based on the first 4 yr of science data from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope
Pass 8: Toward the Full Realization of the Fermi-LAT Scientific Potential
The event selection developed for the Fermi Large Area Telescope before launch has been periodically updated to reflect the constantly improving knowledge of the detector and the environment in which
We demonstrate a method for quantitatively comparing γ-ray pulsar light curves with magnetosphere beaming models. With the Fermi LAT providing many pulsar discoveries and high-quality pulsar light
A New Model for the Galactic Distribution of Free Electrons and its Fluctuations
We present a new model for the Galactic distribution of free electrons. It (a) describes the distribution of the free electrons responsible for pulsar dispersion measures and thus can be used for
