The parkes observatory pulsar data archive
MetadataShow full item record
The Parkes pulsar data archive currently provides access to 144044 data files obtained from observations carried out at the Parkes observatory since the year 1991. Around 10 5 files are from surveys of the sky, the remainder are observations of 775 individual pulsars and their corresponding calibration signals. Survey observations are included from the Parkes 70cm and the Swinburne Intermediate Latitude surveys. Individual pulsar observations are included from young pulsar timing projects, the Parkes Pulsar Timing Array and from the PULSE@Parkes outreach program. The data files and access methods are compatible with Virtual Observatory protocols. This paper describes the data currently stored in the archive and presents ways in which these data can be searched and downloaded. © Astronomical Society of Australia 2011.

Yu, M.; Manchester, R.; Hobbs, G.; Johnston, S.; Kaspi, V.; Keith, M.; Lyne, A.; Qiao, G.; Ravi, V.; Sarkissian, J.; Shannon, Ryan; Xu, R. (2013)Timing observations from the Parkes 64-m radio telescope for 165 pulsars between 1990 and 2011 have been searched for period glitches. Data spans for each pulsar ranged between 5.3 and 20.8 yr. From the total of 1911 yr ...
Discovery of gamma-and X-ray pulsations from the young and energetic PSR J1357-6429 with Fermi and XMM-NewtonLemoine-Goumard, M.; Zavlin, V.; Grondin, M.; Shannon, Ryan; Smith, D.; Burgay, M.; Camilo, F.; Cohen-Tanugi, J.; Freire, P.; Grove, J.; Guillemot, L.; Johnston, S.; Keith, M.; Kramer, M.; Manchester, R.; Michelson, P.; Parent, D.; Possenti, A.; Ray, P.; Renaud, M.; Thorsett, S.; Weltevrede, P.; Wolff, M. (2011)Context. Since the launch of the Fermi satellite, the number of known gamma-ray pulsars has increased tenfold. Most gamma-ray detected pulsars are young and energetic, and many are associated with TeV sources. PSR J1357-6429 ...

(2013)A ‘pulsar timing array’ (PTA), in which observations of a large sample of pulsars spread across the celestial sphere are combined, allows investigation of ‘global’ phenomena such as a background of gravitational waves or ...
