We have constructed timing solutions for 81 γ-ray pulsars covering more than five years of Fermi data. The sample includes 37 radio-quiet or radio-faint pulsars which cannot be timed with other telescopes. These timing solutions and the corresponding pulse times of arrival are prerequisites for further study, e.g., phase-resolved spectroscopy or searches for mode switches. Many γ-ray pulsars are strongly affected by timing noise (TN), and we present a new method for characterizing the noise… 
Detection and Timing of Gamma-Ray Pulsations from the 707 Hz Pulsar J0952−0607
The Low-Frequency Array radio telescope discovered the 707 Hz binary millisecond pulsar (MSP) J0952−0607 in a targeted radio pulsation search of an unidentified Fermi gamma-ray source. This source
THE BRAKING INDEX OF A RADIO-QUIET GAMMA-RAY PULSAR
We report the discovery and timing measurements of PSR J1208−6238, a young and highly magnetized gamma-ray pulsar, with a spin period of 440 ms. The pulsar was discovered in gamma-ray photon data
The Galactic population and properties of young, highly energetic pulsars
The population of young, non-recycled pulsars with spin down energies Edot >10^35 erg/s is sampled predominantly at gamma-ray and radio wavelengths. A total of 137 such pulsars are known, with
Searching for the optical counterparts of two young γ-ray pulsars
We report on the first deep optical observations of two γ-ray pulsars, both among the very first discovered by the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. The two pulsars are the radio-loud PSR J1907+0602
Detection of radio emission from the gamma-ray pulsar J1732−3131 at 327 MHz
Although originally discovered as a radio-quiet gamma-ray pulsar, J1732-3131 has exhibited intriguing detections at decameter wavelengths. We report an extensive follow-up of the pulsar at 327 MHz
Middle aged γ-ray pulsar J1957+5033 in X-rays: pulsations, thermal emission, and nebula
We analyse new XMM–Newton and archival Chandra observations of the middle-aged γ-ray radio-quiet pulsar J1957+5033. We detect, for the first time, X-ray pulsations with the pulsar spin period of
Prospects for the detection of high-energy (E > 25 GeV) Fermi pulsars with the Cherenkov Telescope Array
Around 160 gamma-ray pulsars were discovered by the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) since 2008. The most energetic of them, 12 objects with emission above 25 GeV, are suitable candidates for the
Gamma-ray Emission from PSR J0007+7303 Using Seven Years of Fermi Large Area Telescope Observations
Based on more than seven years of Fermi Large Area Telescope Pass 8 data, we report on a detailed analysis of the bright gamma-ray pulsar (PSR) J0007+7303. We confirm that PSR J0007+7303 is
XMM–Newton observations of a gamma-ray pulsar J0633+0632: pulsations, cooling and large-scale emission
We report results of XMM–Newton observations of a γ-ray pulsar J0633+0632 and its wind nebula. We reveal, for the first time, pulsations of the pulsar X-ray emission with a single sinusoidal pulse
Hints of γ-ray orbital variability from γ2 Velorum
Context. Colliding wind binaries are massive systems featuring strong, interacting stellar winds which may act as particle accelerators. Therefore, such binaries are good candidates for detection at
