P1016 - Instant GRRATificiation

Also known as: P1016

Brief description Rotating radio transients, also known as RRATs, are an enigmatic class of spinning neutron star which occasionally emits bright flashes of light. Due to their intermittent nature, it is difficult to place RRATs amongst the larger population of rotating neutron stars and pulsars. Together with the world's largest radio telescope, FAST, this project will harness the power of the new UWL receiver on Parkes in order to study how light from these mysterious dead stars changes as a function of frequency and intensity.
