P1134 - Timing and broadband follow-up of an intermittent pulsar

Also known as: P1134

Brief description Pulsars are amongst the most exotic astronomical objects known. These fascinating objects dot the sky in the form of giant cosmic lighthouses. They are nature’s premier laboratories for advancing extreme physics; for example, they can be used to test the theories of gravity, or for studies of matter at supra-nuclear densities. Over 2900 pulsars are currently known, and next-generation telescopes such as Australia’s Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) bring new opportunities to discover many more. The goal of this project is to undertake detailed investigation of a new pulsar we discovered with the MWA using the state-of-the-art instrumentation available at the Parkes telescope, in an attempt to determine its physical, geometrical and emission properties and thus extract more scientific value from this discovery.
