We report on a deep radio search for a pulsar wind nebula associated with the radio-quiet neutron star RX J082224300 in the supernova remnant Puppis A. The well-determined properties of Puppis A allow us to constrain the size of any nebula to less than 300; however, we find no evidence for such a source on any spatial scale up to 309. These nondetections result in an upper limit on the radio luminosity of any pulsar-powered nebula that is 3 orders of magnitude below what would be expected if RX… CONTINUE READING
