NPAC (Nuclear/Particle/Astro/Cosmo) Forum
Searching for Pulsars and Radio Transients with the Murchison Widefield Array
Time: 2:30 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: David Kaplan, UW Milwaukee, Department of Physics
Abstract: As one of a new generation of widefield, low-frequency radio
telescopes, the Murchison Widefield Array has enormous potential to
conduct blind searches for radio transients and probe the nearby
pulsar population. We are working to develop a common framework
with the Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP)
Variables and Slow Transients (VAST) survey to allow real-time
transient detection and characterization. I will discuss the expected
types of sources that we hope to discover with the full array and
review some of the initial results from our 32-element testbed.
Host: Peter Timbie
