Radio emission from non-magnetic cataclysmic variables (CVs, accreting white dwarfs) could allow detailed studies of outflows and possibly accretion flows in these nearby, numerous and non-relativistic compact accretors. Up to now, however, very few CVs have been detected in the radio. We have conducted a Very Large Array pilot survey of four close and optically bright novalike CVs at 6 GHz, detecting three, and thereby doubling the number of radio detections of these systems.

Dwarf nova-type cataclysmic variable stars are significant radio emitters
We present 8–12 GHz radio light curves of five dwarf nova (DN) type cataclysmic variable stars (CVs) in outburst (RX And, U Gem, and Z Cam), or superoutburst (SU UMa and YZ Cnc), increasing the
A MeerKAT survey of nearby nova-like cataclysmic variables
We present the results of MeerKAT radio observations of eleven nearby novalike cataclysmic variables. We have detected radio emission from IM Eri, RW Sex, V3885 Sgr and V603 Aql. While RW Sex, V3885
A Jansky VLA Survey of Magnetic Cataclysmic Variable Stars: I. The Data
The Jansky Very Large Array was used to observe 121 magnetic cataclysmic variables (MCVs). We report radio detections of 19 stars. Fourteen are new radio sources, increasing the number of MCVs that
Cataclysmic variables: New frontiers in multi-wavelength research
Compact binary systems in which a white dwarf (WD) accretes material from a non-degenerate companion, constitute some of the most prevalent, yet intriguing astronomical objects in the universe. Of
Fourier time lags in the dwarf nova SS Cygni
To understand the physical processes governing accretion discs we can study active galactic nuclei (AGN), X-ray binary systems (XRBs) and cataclysmic variables (CVs). It has been shown that XRBs and
Cataclysmic Variables as Radio Emitters
Only recently have we had telescopes with sufficient sensitivity to detect cataclysmic variables (CVs) at radio wavelengths. I briefly review the properties of the observed radio emission of
Late-outburst radio flaring in SS Cyg and evidence for a powerful kinetic output channel in cataclysmic variables
Accreting white dwarfs in binary systems known as cataclysmic variables (CVs) have in recent years been shown to produce radio flares during outbursts, qualitatively similar to those observed from
VLA Observations of the AE Aqr-type Cataclysmic Variable LAMOST J024048.51+195226.9
AE Aqr was until recently the only known magnetic cataclysmic variable (MCV) containing a rapidly spinning (33.08 s) white dwarf (WD). Its radio emission is believed to be a superposition of


Detection of radio emission from a nova‐like cataclysmic variable: evidence of jets?
Jets have been detected in many accreting compact objects, and recently indications for jets have finally been found for transient cataclysmic variables (dwarf novae). However, so far, there have
Radio emission from cataclysmic variables
The study of radio emission from cataclysmic variables (CVs) is a new and developing field. Radio emission from novae, recurrent novae, dwart novae and each of the subclasses (AM Her and DQ Her) of
The complete set of ASCA X-ray observations of non-magnetic cataclysmic variables
Timing analysis reveals large X-ray flux variations in dwarf novae in outburst (Z Cam, SS Cyg and SU UMa) and orbital modulation in high inclination systems (including OY Car, HT Cas, U Gem, T Leo).
First detection of radio emission from a dwarf nova
The dwarf novae represent a class of cataclysmic variable stars that typically exhibit random optical outbursts of 2–6 mag with mean outburst periods of 10–150 days. Dwarf novae are close binary

We conducted a VLA survey of nine magnetic cataclysmic variable stars (MCVs) at 8.436 GHz in 2003 October, to constrain models of radio emission. A follow-up study was conducted in 2004 September. We

The SWSex stars are a class of cataclysmic variables, originally identified because they shared a number of enigmatic properties - most notably, single-peaked emission lines instead of the
