Pulsar Timing: Experience from Fermi LAT

Online: Zoom - subscription required

Pulsars are the most common Galactic GeV gamma-ray sources. Their spectra are hard, but cut off sharply in the energy range of the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on the Fermi satellite. Cherenkov telescopes have detected pulsations from 4 of the brightest of the nearly 300 LAT pulsars. CTAO's improved sensitivity may triple the number of [...]
