We present radio observations of a region in the vicinity of the young pulsar PSR B1853+01 in the supernova remnant W44. The pulsar is located at the apex of an extended feature with cometary morphology. We argue on the basis of its morphology and its spectral index and polarization properties that this is a synchrotron nebula produced by the spin-down energy of the pulsar. The geometry and physical parameters of this pulsar-powered nebula and W44 are used to derive three different measures of… Expand
Chandra observations of the pulsar wind nebula in SNR G0.9+0.1
We present observations with the Chandra X-ray Observatory of the pulsar wind nebula (PWN) within the supernova remnant G0.9+0.1. At Chandra's high resolution, the PWN has a clear axial symmetry; aExpand
The X-Ray Structure and Spectrum of the Pulsar Wind Nebula Surrounding PSR B1853+01 in W44
We present the result of a Chandra ACIS observation of the pulsar PSR B1853+01 and its associated pulsar wind nebula (PWN), embedded in the supernova remnant W44. A hard-band ACIS map cleanlyExpand
An unusual pulsar wind nebula associated with PSR B0906-49
We report on Australia Telescope Compact Array observations of the ~105 yr old pulsar PSR B0906-49. In an image containing only off-pulse emission, we find a weak, slightly extended source coincidentExpand
A Multifrequency Radio Study of Supernova Remnant G292.0+1.8 and Its Pulsar Wind Nebula
We present a detailed radio study of the young supernova remnant (SNR) G292.0+1.8 and its associated pulsar PSR J1124-5916, using the Australia Telescope Compact Array at observing wavelengths of 20,Expand
A Radio Survey for Pulsar Wind Nebulae
We have imaged the fields of 35 pulsars with the VLA at 8.4 GHz to search for evidence that the pulsars have deposited energy into their surroundings in the form of an extended wind nebula.Expand
Chandra Imaging of the X-Ray Nebula Powered by Pulsar B1509?58
We present observations with the Chandra X-Ray Observatory of the pulsar wind nebula (PWN) powered by the energetic young pulsar B1509-58. These data confirm the complicated morphology of the systemExpand
For pulsars similar to the one in the Crab Nebula, most of the energy input to the surrounding wind nebula occurs on a timescale 103 yr; during this time, the nebula expands into freely expandingExpand
The Location of Young Pulsar PSR J0837–2454: Galactic Halo or Local Supernova Remnant?
We present the discovery and timing of the young (age ∼28.6 kyr) pulsar PSR J0837–2454. Based on its high latitude (b = 98) and dispersion measure (DM = 143 pc cm−3), the pulsar appears to be at aExpand

Deep VLA Imaging of Pulsar-powered Nebulae and the Beaming Fraction of Young Pulsars
We have made sensitive, high-resolution images of the fields of seven pulsar-powered nebulae with the VLA at 20 and 6 cm. Our goal was to resolve out the extended emission from the nebula and to lookExpand
Discovery of a young, 267 millisecond pulsar in the supernova remnant W44
The discovery of a 267 ms pulsar, PSR 1853+01, in the supernova remnant W44 (G34.7−0.4) is reported. The pulsar is located south of the center of W44, well within its radio shell and at the southernExpand
X-ray detection of the eclipsing millisecond pulsar PSR1957 +20
IN the binary millisecond pulsar system PSR1957 + 20 (ref. 1), a wind from the pulsar is ablating a low-mass (0.02 solar mass) companion and also inflating a local nebula2 confined by the ramExpand
The X-ray-emitting trail of the nearby pulsar PSR1929 + 10
PULSARS—rapidly spinning, highly magnetized neutron stars—are thought to lose their rotational energy through the emission of relativistic particles1,2. As the typical lifetime of a pulsar greatlyExpand
Does the VELA Pulsar Have ``Wisps''?
