Brief description

We recently discovered five millisecond pulsars (MSPs) in the globular cluster Omega Centauri. This is the first pulsar discovery in this globular cluster. Four of these pulsars are isolated with spin periods of 4.1, 4.2, 4.6 and 6.8ms. The fifth has a spin period of 4.8ms and is in an eclipsing binary system with an orbital period of 2.1 hours. We propose to carry out a timing campaign of these new pulsars in order to study the dynamics in the core of Omega Centauri, to reveal the origin of Gamma-ray emission from the core, and to probe the ionised interstellar medium in Omega Centauri. Our proposed observations will also enable us to carry out deeper searches of pulsars in the cluster.
