We present the discovery and follow-up observations of 142 pulsars found in the Parkes 20-cm multibeam pulsar survey of the Galactic plane. These new discoveries bring the total number of pulsars found by the survey to 742. In addition to tabulating spin and astrometric parameters, along with pulse width and flux density information, we present orbital characteristics for 13 binary pulsars which form part of the new sample. Combining these results from another recent Parkes multibeam survey at… 

The Parkes multibeam pulsar survey – VII. Timing of four millisecond pulsars and the underlying spin-period distribution of the Galactic millisecond pulsar population

We present timing observations of 4-ms pulsars discovered in the Parkes 20-cm multibeam pulsar survey of the Galactic plane. PSRs J1552−4937 and J1843−1448 are isolated objects with spin periods of

The High Time Resolution Universe Pulsar Survey - I. System configuration and initial discoveries

With ∼30 per cent of the mid-latitude survey complete, the 13-beam multibeam receiver on the Parkes Radio Telescope has redetected 223 previously known pulsars and discovered 27 pulsars, five of which are millisecond pulsars.


The detection of radio pulsars within the central few parsecs of the Galaxy would provide a unique probe of the gravitational and magneto-ionic environments in the Galactic center (GC) and, if close

A 1.4 GHz Arecibo Survey for Pulsars in Globular Clusters

We have surveyed all 22 known Galactic globular clusters observable with the Arecibo radio telescope and within 70 kpc of the Sun for radio pulsations at ~1.4 GHz. Data were taken with the Wideband

Timing of pulsars found in a deep Parkes multibeam survey

We have carried out a sensitive radio pulsar survey along the northern Galactic plane ($50^{\circ} < l < 60^{\circ}$ and $|b| \lapp 2^{\circ}$) using the Parkes 20-cm multibeam system. We observed

The High Time Resolution Universe Pulsar Survey – VII. Discovery of five millisecond pulsars and the different luminosity properties of binary and isolated recycled pulsars

This paper presents the discovery and timing parameters for five millisecond pulsars (MSPs), four in binary systems with probable white dwarf companions and one isolated, found in ongoing processing

Detecting pulsars in the Galactic Centre

Although high-sensitivity surveys have revealed a number of highly dispersed pulsars in the inner Galaxy, none have so far been found in the Galactic centre (GC) region, which we define to be within


We report on the discovery and timing observations of 29 distant long-period pulsars found in the ongoing Arecibo L-band Feed Array pulsar survey. Following discovery with the Arecibo Telescope,

The SUrvey for pulsars and extragalactic radio bursts V: recent discoveries and full timing solutions

The SUrvey for Pulsars and Extragalactic Radio Bursts ran from 2014 April to 2019 August, covering a large fraction of the southern hemisphere at mid- to high-galactic latitudes, and consisting of

Abstract Among the current sample of over 2000 radio pulsars known primarily in the disk of our Galaxy, millisecond pulsars now number almost 200. Due to the phenomenal success of blind surveys of



The Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey - III. Young Pulsars and the Discovery and Timing of 200 Pulsars

The Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey has unlocked vast areas of the Galactic plane, which were previously invisible to earlier low-frequency and less-sensitive surveys. The survey has discovered more


ABSTRA C T A survey of the entire southern sky for millisecond and low-luminosity pulsars using the ATNF Parkes radio telescope has now been completed. The survey detected 298 pulsars, of which 101

limiting flux density of the survey is about 0.2 mJy. At shorter or longer periods or higher dispersions, the sensitivity is reduced. Timing observations are carried out for pulsars discovered in the

The Parkes multibeam pulsar survey – IV. Discovery of 180 pulsars and parameters for 281 previously known pulsars

The Parkes multibeam pulsar survey has led to the discovery of more than 700 pulsars. In this paper, we provide timing solutions, flux densities and pulse profiles for 180 of these new discoveries.

Revisiting the radial distribution of pulsars in the Galaxy

The high sensitivity Parkes and Swinburne Multibeam pulsar surveys have nearly doubled the number of known pul- sars and revealed many more distant pulsars with high dispersion measures. These data

Pulsar Birthrates from the Parkes Multibeam Survey

We investigate the pulsar birthrate from a sample of 815 nonrecycled pulsars detected by the Parkes multibeam survey, accounting as accurately as possible for all known selection effects. We find
