Radio-wave propagation in the non-Gaussian interstellar medium

  title={Radio-wave propagation in the non-Gaussian interstellar medium},
  author={S. S. Boldyrev and Carl R. Gwinn},
Radio waves propagating from distant pulsars in the interstellar medium (ISM), are refracted by electron density inhomogeneities, so that the intensity of observed pulses fluctuates with time. The observed pulse shapes are used to diagnose electron-density distribution in the ISM. The theory relating the observed pulse time-shapes to the electron-density correlation function has developed for 30 years, however, two puzzles have remained. First, observational scaling of pulse broadening with the… CONTINUE READING
