We have made polarimetric monitoring observations of most of the millisecond pulsars visible from the northern hemisphere at 1410 MHz over a period of 3 yr. Their emission properties are presented here and compared with those of normal pulsars. Although we demonstrated in Paper I that millisecond pulsars exhibit the same flux density spectra and a similar profile complexity, the results presented here suggest that millisecond pulsar profiles do not comply with the predictions of classification… 

Polarization observations of 20 millisecond pulsars

Polarization profiles are presented for 20 millisecond pulsars that are being observed as part of the Parkes Pulsar Timing Array project. The observations used the Parkes multibeam receiver with a

Polarimetric profiles of 27 millisecond pulsars

We present high time resolution polarimetric profiles of 27 predominantly southern hemisphere millisecond pulsars, 15 of which have no previously published polarimetry. These observations were made

The Characteristics of Millisecond Pulsar Emission. III. From Low to High Frequencies

In this paper we present the first observations of a large sample of millisecond pulsars at frequencies of 2.7 GHz (11 cm) and 4.9 GHz (6 cm). For almost all sources, these represent the first 11 cm

Toward an Empirical Theory of Pulsar Emission. XII. Exploring the Physical Conditions in Millisecond Pulsar Emission Regions

The five-component profile of the 2.7 ms pulsar J0337+1715 appears to exhibit the best example to date of a core/double-cone emission-beam structure in a millisecond pulsar (MSP). Moreover, three

Pulsar polarisation below 200 MHz: Average profiles and propagation effects

We present the highest-quality polarisation profiles to date of 16 non-recycled pulsars and four millisecond pulsars, observed below 200 MHz with the LOFAR high-band antennas. Based on the observed

Profile Instabilities of the Millisecond Pulsar PSR J1022+1001

We present evidence that the integrated profiles of some millisecond pulsars exhibit severe changes that are inconsistent with the moding phenomenon as known from slowly rotating pulsars. We study


We report on polarimetric observations of 100 pulsars centered on 774 MHz, made using the Green Bank Telescope, presenting their polarization profiles and polarized flux densities and comparing them

A study of multifrequency polarization pulse profiles of millisecond pulsars

We present high signal-to-noise ratio, multifrequency polarization pulse profiles for 24 millisecond pulsars that are being observed as part of the Parkes Pulsar Timing Array project. The pulsars are

The NANOGrav 12.5 yr Data Set: Polarimetry and Faraday Rotation Measures from Observations of Millisecond Pulsars with the Green Bank Telescope

In this work, we present polarization profiles for 23 millisecond pulsars observed at 820 and 1500 MHz with the Green Bank Telescope as part of the NANOGrav pulsar timing array. We calibrate the data

Polarized radio emission from a magnetar

We present polarization observations of the radio emitting magnetar AXPJ1810-197. Using simultaneous multifrequency observations performed at 1.4, 4.9 and 8.4 GHz, we obtained polarization



Low-frequency polarimetry of the millisecond pulsar PSR1937 + 214

Pulsars with periods of a few milliseconds1,2 test theories of the radio emission process in extreme conditions. The velocity of light radius, which is an important scale-length in most theories, is

Polarimetry of millisecond pulsars

The mean polarization profiles of several fast pulsars were measured. Observations of pulsar PSR 1937 + 21 are similar to previously published results, except that a shallower position angle was

Millisecond pulsar radiation properties

Two investigations of millisecond pulsar radiation are discussed: average total intensity pulse morphology and individual pulse to pulse fluctuations. The average emission profiles of millisecond

The magnetic fields, ages, and original spin periods of millisecond pulsars

Accurate determination of the spin-down rates of millisecond pulsars requires consideration of the apparent acceleration of the pulsars due to their high transverse velocities. We show that for

Discovery of Four Isolated Millisecond Pulsars

We report the discovery of four isolated millisecond pulsars found as part of the Parkes 436 MHz survey of the southern sky. Three of the pulsars, PSRs J1024-0719, J1744-1134, and J2124-3358, are

Two newly discovered millisecond pulsars

Two millisecond pulsars have been discovered in the course of systematic surveys being made with the Arecibo radio telescope. PSR J2019 + 2425 has a 3.935 ms period and moves in a nearly circular,

A second companion of the millisecond pulsar 1620 – 26

MILLISECOND pulsars are usually found in binary systems. This is in keeping with the generally accepted model for the formation of such pulsars14 in which an old neutron star is spun up to high

We report on optical observations of the low-mass binary millisecond pulsar systems J0034-0534 and J2145-0750. A faint (I = 23.5) object was found to be coincident with the timing position of PSR
