Probing millisecond pulsar emission geometry using light curves from the Fermi/Large Area Telescope
(IOP Publishing, 2009)
An interesting new high-energy pulsar sub-population is emerging following early discoveries of gamma-ray millisecond pulsars (MSPs) by the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT). We present results from three-dimensional emission ...
Modelling the stellar soft-photon energy density of globular clusters
(South African Institute of Physics, 2014)
Recent observations by e.g. Fermi LAT and H.E.S.S. have revealed globular clusters to be sources of high-energy and very-high-energy gamma rays. It has been suggested that the presence of large numbers of millisecond pulsars ...
The contribution of millisecond pulsars to the Galactic cosmic-ray lepton spectrum
Pulsars are believed to be sources of relativistic electrons and positrons. The abundance of detections of γγ-ray millisecond pulsars by Fermi Large Area Telescope coupled with their light curve characteristics that imply ...
Constraining relativistic bow shock properties in rotation-powered millisecond pulsar binaries
Multiwavelength follow-up of unidentified Fermi sources has vastly expanded the number of known galactic-field "black widow" and "redback" millisecond pulsar binaries. Focusing on their rotation-powered state, we interpret ...
