Multifrequency observations of Pulsars

Thursday May 5, 2022
2:00 pm

 Presenter:  Pratik Kumar (UNM)
 Series:  Center for Astrophysics Research and Technologies Seminar Series
 Abstract:  Pulsars are rapidly rotating neutron stars with varied applications in different areas of Physics. For the first part of the talk, I will discuss some of the results from our multifrequency, X-ray, and radio observations of the newly discovered supersonic pulsar PSR J0002+6216, which presents a simple geometry to study the morphology of the bow shock region. The X-ray data were taken using Chandra and provide marginal evidence for the evolution of the PWN emission along the tail. The radio data taken with the VLA shows an extended bow shock and tail region in radio continuum images, including asymmetric, resolved structure around the pulsar, in the bow shock region. For the next part, I will discuss some results from the low-frequency monitoring observations of the pulsar with LWA and how we could use that to study the behavior of the interstellar medium.
