Abstract I present observational and theoretical evidence that most of the pulsar spin-down energy is transferred away as a striped pulsar wind and that this energy is released by annihilation of the alternating magnetic field at the pulsar wind termination shock. One-dimensional particle-in-cells (PIC) simulations show that the alternating fields do annihilate at the termination shock in a striped wind. The particle acceleration should be studied in multidimensional simulations. As a first… Expand
