Radio pulse characteristics


tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Duty cycle is typically 5%
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Some tex2html_wrap_inline4084
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Individual pulses very variable in intensity
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Stable profile if several hundred pulses added
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Strongly linearly polarised
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Monotonic polarisation position angle swing through the pulse implies the origin is near a magnetic pole
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Much more complex polarisation characteristic in msps indicating more complex field
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Very high brightness temperature implies coherent emission
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Drifting subpulses
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Mode changing
