Pulsar Searches at Effelsberg — Past, Present & Future

  • D.R. Lorimer (a1) and M. Kramer (a2)

Abstract

It is fair to say that pulsar searches with the 100-m Effelsberg telescope have had something of a checkered history — after all, for many years, this was the largest radio telescope in the world never to have found a pulsar! This situation has, happily, changed. In this review we summarize recent discoveries of weak pulsars along the Galactic plane, give a progress report on a survey for highly dispersed pulsars in the Galactic centre and, in the spirit of this meeting, speculate on what should be a bright future for pulsar searches with this instrument.
