We report the discovery of PSR J18470130, a radio pulsar with a 6.7 s spin period, in the Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey of the Galactic plane. The slowdown rate for the pulsar, s s 1 , is high and implies a 12 1.3 # 10 surface dipole magnetic field strength of G. This inferred dipolar magnetic field strength is the highest 13 9.4 # 10 by far among all known radio pulsars and over twice the “quantum critical field” above which some models predict radio emission should not occur. The inferred… Expand

USING CHANDRA TO UNVEIL THE HIGH-ENERGY PROPERTIES OF THE HIGH MAGNETIC FIELD RADIO PULSAR J1119-6127
PSR J1119–6127 is a high magnetic field (B = 4.1 × 1013 G), young (≤1700 year old), and slow (P = 408 ms) radio pulsar associated with the supernova remnant (SNR) G292.2–0.5. In 2003, Chandra allowedExpand
A transient, flat spectrum radio pulsar near the Galactic Centre
Recent studies have shown possible connections between highly magnetized neutron stars ('magnetars'), whose X-ray emission is too bright to be powered by rotational energy, and ordinary radioExpand
Two Radio Pulsars with Magnetar Fields
PSRs J1847-0130 and J1718-37184 have inferred surface dipole magnetic fields greater than those of any other known pulsars and well above the ``quantum critical field'' above which some modelsExpand
The fundamental plane for radio magnetars
High magnetic fields are a distinguishing feature of neutron stars and the existence of sources (the soft gamma repeaters, SGRs, and the anomalous X-ray pulsars) hosting an ultramagnetized neutronExpand
Nature of anomalous X-ray pulsars, soft gamma repeaters and radio pulsars with very long periods
A brief review of the known models for the description of anomalous X-ray pulsars (AXPs) and soft gamma repeaters (SGRs) is given. A new model is proposed to explain the main properties of theseExpand

TLDR
Two X-ray bursts, with properties similar to those of SGRs, from the direction of the anomalousX-ray pulsar 1E1048.1 - 5937.1 imply a close relationship (perhaps evolutionary) between AXPs and S GRs, with both being magnetars. Expand
