Five New Pulsars

Article metrics


FIVE new pulsars have been discovered in a systematic search at low galactic latitudes, using the Mark I radio telescope at Jodrell Bank, and a radio frequency of 408 MHz. A total of 431 independent points were observed (many of them more than once) at integral degrees of galactic latitude and longitude, including all such points with latitude −1, 0, and + 1° and longitude 11° ≤l≤ 125°. The beamwidth of the telescope to half power was 0°.8.
