PSR J1357−6429 is a young and energetic radio pulsar detected in X-rays and γ-rays. It powers a compact pulsar wind nebula with a jet visible in X-rays and a large-scale plerion detected in X-ray and TeV ranges. Previous multiwavelength studies suggested that the pulsar has a significant proper motion of about 180 mas yr−1, implying an extremely high transverse velocity of about 2000 km s−1. In order to verify this, we performed radio-interferometric observations of PSR J1357−6429 with the…

Radio-interferometric and near-IR observations of PSR J1357—6429

PSR J1357—6429 is a young radio pulsar detected in X-rays and γ-rays. We performed radio-interferometric and high spatial resolution near-infrared observations of the pulsar. Based on the obtained

Tracking the Footprints of the Radio Pulsar B1727–47: Proper Motion, Host Supernova Remnant, and the Glitches

The bright radio pulsar B1727−47, with a characteristic age of 80 kyr, was among the first pulsars discovered 50 yr ago. Using regular timing observations and its interferometric positions at three

GeV Gamma-Ray Emission from Pulsar Wind Nebula HESS J1356-645 with Fermi-Large Area Telescope

HESS J1356-645 is considered to be a pulsar wind nebula (PWN) associated with the pulsar PSR J1357-6429. We reanalyze the GeV gamma-ray emission in the direction of HESS J1356-645 with more than 13

Near-infrared observations of PSR J1357-6429

PSR J1357$-$6429 is a young radio pulsar that was detected in X-rays and $\gamma$-rays. We present the high spatial resolution near-infrared imaging of the pulsar field in $J$, $H$ and $K_s$ bands

Possible optical counterpart of PSR J1357−6429

Context. PSR J1357−6429 is a Vela-like radio pulsar that has been recently detected in X-rays and γ-rays. It powers a compact taillike X-ray pulsar wind nebula and X-ray-radio plerion associated with

Discovery of gamma- and X-ray pulsations from the young and energetic PSR J1357−6429 with Fermi and XMM-Newton

Context. Since the launch of the Fermi satellite, the number of known gamma-ray pulsars has increased tenfold. Most gamma-ray detected pulsars are young and energetic, and many are associated with

VLT observations of the two Fermi pulsars PSR J1357-6429 and PSR J1048-5832

Optical observations of pulsars are crucial to study the neutron star properties, from the structure and composition of the interior, to the properties and geometry of the magnetosphere.


We observed the young pulsar J1357–6429 with the Chandra and XMM-Newton observatories. The pulsar spectrum fits well a combination of an absorbed power-law model (Γ = 1.7 ± 0.6) and a blackbody model

First X-Ray Observations of the Young Pulsar J1357–6429

The first short Chandra and XMM-Newton observations of the young and energetic pulsar J1357-6429 provided indications of a tail-like pulsar wind nebula associated with this object as well as

Discovery of X-ray emission from the young radio pulsar PSR J1357–6429

We present the first X-ray detection of the very young pulsar PSR J1357-6429 (characteristic age of 7.3 kyr) using data from the XMM-Newton  and Chandra  satellites. We find that the spectrum is well

The Very Young Radio Pulsar J1357–6429

We report the discovery of a radio pulsar with a characteristic age of 7300 yr, making it one of the 10 apparently youngest Galactic pulsars known. PSR J1357-6429, with a spin period of P = 166 ms


We describe a data reduction pipeline for very long baseline interferometry astrometric observations of pulsars, implemented using the ParselTongue AIPS interface. The pipeline performs calibration

A statistical study of 233 pulsar proper motions

We present and analyse a catalogue of 233 pulsars with proper motion measurements. The sample contains a wide variety of pulsars including recycled objects and those associated with globular clusters
