New advances in pulsar magnetosphere modelling
The wealth of high-energy (E &50MeV) and very-high-energy (E >100 GeV) data accumulated over the past few years have provided unprecedented opportunities to probe pulsar emission models. The Fermi Large Area Telescope ...
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 ...
