In this paper we study the generation of very high energy (VHE) emission in Crab-like pulsars driven by means of the feedback of Cherenkov drift waves on distribution of magnetospheric electrons. We have found that the unstable Cherenkov drift modes lead to the quasi-linear diffusion (QLD), keeping the pitch angles from vanishing, which in turn, maintains the synchrotron mechanism. Considering the Crab-like pulsars it has been shown that the growth rate of the Cherenkov drift instability (ChDI… Expand

Synchrotron emission driven by the Cherenkov-drift instability in active galactic nuclei
In the present paper we study generation of the synchrotron emission by means of the feedback of Cherenkov drift waves on the particle distribution via the diffusion process. It is shown that despiteExpand

We have examined the recently detected very high energy (VHE) pulsed radiation from the Crab pulsar. According to the observational evidence, the observed emission (>25GeV) peaks at the same phaseExpand
The influence of corotation on high-energy synchrotron emission in Crab-like pulsars
For Crab-like pulsars, we consider the synchrotron mechanism under the influence of relativistic effects of rotation in order to study the production of very-high-energy (VHE) pulsed radiation. TheExpand
Ultra High Energy Electrons Powered by Pulsar Rotation
TLDR
A new mechanism of particle acceleration, driven by the rotational slow down of the Crab pulsar, is explored, which allows the electrons in the primary beam to be catapulted to multiple TeV (~ 100 TeV) and even PeV energy domain. Expand
Quasi-linear theory of Cherenkov-drift instability: Application for radio pulsars
We present a plasma model for formation of discontinuous position-angle curves observed in some radio pulsar profiles. The model is based on the polarization properties of radio waves excited byExpand
