First pulsar detection by CAMRAS

Submitter: Paul Boven
Description: Just before the ASTRON/JIVE open day, CAMRAS volunteers used the Dwingeloo Telescope to record pulsar signals from PSR B0329+54, the strongest pulsar that is visible from the Northern hemisphere. The image shows the noise power in a 1MHz wide band as a function of time: the green dots are single (folded) measurements, while the red line shows the averaged power over 705 pulse periods. We are currently working on a more wide-band system with de-dispersion, to make single pulses audible.
