Dataset: Parkes observations for project P970 semester 2018APRS_06


During the past 6 years, we at Parkes and collaborators at other radio telescopes have been remarkably successful at discovering millisecond pulsars (MSPs) associated with unidentified Fermi-LAT gamma-ray sources. Based on lessons learned, we here propose to carry out targeted searches with the new Ultra-wideband Low (UWL) receiver that will be installed next semester. The ultra-wide frequency coverage will enable us to detect MSPs with steep spectrum and avoid difficulties caused by interstellar scintillation and dispersive and scattering smearing. We propose to revisit highly ranked pulsar candidates that remain unidentified. Such a pilot survey will help us designing future searches of the coming 4FGL gamma-ray source catalog using the UWL. The overall time request is 23 hours on source, or 26 hours including overheads.

The metadata and files (if any) are available to the public.
