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 survey for 12‐18 months after confirmation to obtain accurate positions, spin parameters, dispersion measures, pulse shapes and mean flux densities. The survey is proving to be extremely successful, with more than 600 pulsars discovered so far. We expect that, when complete, this one survey will… 

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

The Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey - VI. Discovery and timing of 142 pulsars and a Galactic population analysis

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

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

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 - 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 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 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.


More than 2000 pulsars are now known. These pulsars may be divided into a number of different classes according to their period, period derivative, binary properties, emission characteristics and so


We describe an ongoing search for pulsars and dispersed pulses of radio emission, such as those from rotating radio transients (RRATs) and fast radio bursts, at 350 MHz using the Green Bank

The High Time Resolution Universe Pulsar Survey - V. Single-pulse energetics and modulation properties of 315 pulsars

We report on the pulse-to-pulse energy distributions and phase-resolved modulation properties for catalogued pulsars in the southern High Time Resolution Universe intermediate-latitude survey. We




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

A high-frequency survey of the southern Galactic plane for pulsars

Results of an HF survey designed to detect young, distant, and short-period pulsars are presented. The survey detected a total of 100 pulsars, 46 of which were previously unknown. The periods of the

The Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey: PSR J1811-1736, a Pulsar in a Highly Eccentric Binary System

We are undertaking a high-frequency survey of the Galactic plane for radio pulsars, using the 13-element multibeam receiver on the 64-m Parkes radio telescope. We describe briefly the survey system

PSR J1740-3052: a pulsar with a massive companion

We report on the discovery of a binary pulsar, PSR J1740−3052, during the Parkes multibeam survey. Timing observations of the 570-ms pulsar at Jodrell Bank and Parkes show that it is young, with a

Spectra of Southern Pulsars

We compare the spectral properties of the millisecond and slow pulsars detected in the Parkes 70 cm survey. The mean spectral index for the millisecond pulsars (MSPs) is -1.9 ± 0.1, whereas the mean

Two Young Radio Pulsars Coincident with EGRET Sources

We report the discovery and follow-up timing observations of two young energetic radio pulsars. PSR J1420-6048 has a period P = 68 ms and period derivative = 83 × 10-15, implying a characteristic age

Discovery of Five Binary Radio Pulsars

We report on five binary pulsars discovered in the Parkes multibeam Galactic plane survey. All of the pulsars are old, with characteristic ages (1-11) × 109 yr, and have relatively small inferred

Observations of pulsar glitches

279 pulsars have been regularly monitored in a timing programme at lodrell Bank, with the aim of providing ephemerides for X-ray and gamma-ray observations and for studying irregularities in their

X-Ray Observations of the New Pulsar-Supernova Remnant System PSR J1119–6127 and Supernova Remnant G292.2–0.5

PSR J1119-6127 is a recently discovered 1600-yr-old radio pulsar that has a very high inferred surface dipolar magnetic field. We present a detailed analysis of a pointed ASCA observation and

A millisecond pulsar

The puzzle of the radio properties of 4C21.53 may be resolved by the discovery and related observations of a fast pulsar, 1937+214, with a period of 1.558 ms in the constellation Vulpecula only a few degrees from the direction to the original pulsar.
