Discovery of Eight Recycled Pulsars – The Swinburne Intermediate Latitude Pulsar Survey

  • Russell T. Edwards (a1)

Abstract

We have conducted a pulsar survey of intermediate Galactic latitudes (5° < |b| < 15°) at 20 cm. The survey has been highly successful, discovering 58 new pulsars, eight of which are recycled, in only ∼14 days of integration time. One pulsar has a very narrow (2° FWHM) average profile for the pulsar’s period (278 ms). The six new recycled binary systems provide valuable information on the formation of white dwarf pulsar binaries. Two systems have massive white dwarf companions (> 0.57 M and > 1.2 M), while another has a low mass (∼ 0.2 M) companion in a 23.3-d orbit, residing the well-known orbital period “gap”.
