Radio observations of the region surrounding PSR J1301−6305 at 5.5 GHz and 7.5 GHz were conducted with ATCA on September 5, 2013. The observations were dedicated to the search of the radio counterpart of the evolved pulsar wind nebula (PWN) HESS J1303−631, which has been detected in X-rays and GeV–TeV γ-rays. The collected data do not reveal any significant extended emission associated with PSR J1301−6305. In addition, archival 1.384 GHz and 2.368 GHz data do not show any evidence for a radio… Expand

Pulsar timing is a classic technology of detecting irregularities in pulsar rotation. We carried out this method for 18 young radio pulsars, with long-term timing observations obtained between 2007Expand


Is IGR J11014-6103 a Pulsar with the Highest Known Kick Velocity?
We report on Chandra X-ray and Parkes radio observations of IGR J11014-6103, which is a possible pulsar wind nebula with a complex X-ray morphology and a likely radio counterpart. With the superbExpand
Serendipitous discovery of the unidentified extended TeV gamma-ray source HESS J1303-631
The serendipitous discovery of an unidentified extended TeV γ-ray source close to the galactic plane named HESS J1303-631 at a significance of 21 standard deviations is reported. The observationsExpand
Probing the extent of the non-thermal emission from the Vela X region at TeV energies with H.E.S.S.
Vela X is a region of extended radio emission in the western part of the Vela constellation: one of the nearest pulsar wind nebulae (PWNe), and associated with the energetic Vela pulsar (PSRExpand
Time-dependent modeling of pulsar wind nebulae
A spatially independent model that calculates the time evolution of the electron spectrum in a spherically expanding pulsar wind nebula (PWN) is presented, allowing one to make broadband predictionsExpand
For pulsars similar to the one in the Crab Nebula, most of the energy input to the surrounding wind nebula occurs on a timescale 103 yr; during this time, the nebula expands into freely expandingExpand
New Associations of Gamma-Ray Sources from the Fermi Second Source Catalog
We present the results of an all-sky radio survey between 5 and 9 GHz of the fields surrounding all unassociated gamma-ray objects listed in the Fermi Large Area Telescope Second Source CatalogExpand
Radio emission from supernova remnants
The explosion of a supernova releases almost instantaneously about 10$$^{51}$$51 ergs of mechanic energy, changing irreversibly the physical and chemical properties of large regions in the galaxies.Expand
Pulsar bow-shock nebulae - I. Physical regimes and detectability conditions
Pulsar bow-shock nebulae originate from the interaction of the ambient medium with the wind of a moving pulsar. The properties of these nebulae depend on both the physical conditions in the ambientExpand
Unidentified Gamma-Ray Sources as Ancient Pulsar Wind Nebulae
In this paper we explore the evolution of a PWN while the pulsar is spinning down. An MHD approach is used to simulate the evolution of a composite remnant. Particular attention is given to theExpand
Numerical simulations of composite supernova remnants for small σ pulsar wind nebulae
Composite supernova remnants consist of a pulsar wind nebula located inside a shell-type remnant. The presence of a shell has implications on the evolution of the nebula, although the converse isExpand
