A multi-wavelength pipeline for pulsar searches
- 2 Downloads
Pulsar studies in the recent years have shown, more than others, to have benefited from a multi-wavelength approach. The INAF-Astronomical Observatory in Cagliari (INAF-OAC) is a growing facility with a young group devoted to pulsar and fast-transient studies across the electromagnetic spectrum. Taking advantage of this expertise, we have worked to provide a suite of multi-wavelength software and databases for the observations of pulsars and compact Galactic objects at the Sardinia Radio Telescope (SRT). In turn, radio pulsar observations at SRT will be made available, in a processed format, to gamma-ray searches using AGILE and FERMI gamma-ray satellites and, in a near future, they will be complementary to polarimetric X-ray observations with IXPE.
