High-energy pulsar light curves in an offset polar cap B-field geometry
The light curves and spectral properties of more than 200 γ -ray pulsars have been measured in unsurpassed detail in the eight years since the launch of the hugely successful Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) γ -ray ...
Calibration of statistical methods used to constrain pulsar geometries via multiband light curve modelling
Since its launch in 2008, the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) has detected over 200 γ-ray pulsars above 100 MeV. This population of pulsars is characterised by a rich diversity of light curve morphologies. Researchers ...
Investigating gamma-ray fluxes from globular clusters
Globular clusters are large collections of old stars that are orbiting the core of a galaxy. Our Milky Way Galaxy has about 160 known clusters, with perhaps more to be discovered. We first accumulated the necessary ...
