Table information for 'pul.pulsar'


This table is available for ADQL queries and through the TAP endpoint.

Resource Description:

The pulsar timing data were obtained with the Nanshan 25M radio telescope. Our observations, which commenced in January 2000, have been made using a dual-channel room-temperature receiver with a bandwidth of 320 MHz centered at 1540 MHz before June 2002. The de-dispersion was provided by a 2X128X2.5 MHz analog filter-bank. A cryogenic receiver was mounted in July 2002, which increases the sensitivity to 0.5 mJy. In January 2010, a digital filter-bank (DFB) system came into operation. The higher time resolution allows us to monitor about 280 pulsars, including ten millisecond-pulsars (MSP). The format of the DFB data is "Psrfit". The "psrchive" program could reads and analyzes the data.

Timing observations of 74 pulsars have been regularly carried out between 2002 July to 2009 December. These 74 pulsars have been monitored approximately once every 9d using a dual-channel cryogenic system that receives orthogonal linear polarizations at the central observing frequency of 1540 MHz. The folded profiles obtained are released in format PSRFITS for timing analysis, the file name extension is .FTp. Users can enter "~*.FTp*" in "Product key" filed to search and download it.
