Extract

Many papers were in the past devoted to the investigation of the interstellar medium (ISM) with the help of pulsars, most of them studying the time and frequency structure of pulsar flux variations in the strong scintillation regime. Weak scintillation is typically found at cm- and dcm-wavelengths, but depends on distance so that the critical frequency (νc ) increases with distance. Pulsar intensities weaken, however, at high frequencies, since as a rule pulsar spectra have spectral indices steeper than −1.5. This explains why there are practically no measurements of pulsars in the weak scintillation regime.

We report in this paper on first measurements of the correlation function of pulsar intensity fluctuations, of the decorrelation time τ d and of the scintillation index m d at high frequencies, i.e. at 4.75 and 10.55 GHz in the weak scintillation regime. The detail data analysis, theoretical relations and comparison with theory will presented by Malofeev et al. (1996).
