Finding new extragalactic pulsars with MeerKAT.
How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

The TRAPUM collaboration has used the MeerKAT telescope to conduct a search for pulsed radio emission from the young Small Magellanic Cloud pulsar J0058−7218 located in the supernova remnant IKT 16, following its discovery in X-rays with XMM-Newton. We report no significant detection of dispersed, pulsed radio emission from this source in three 2-h...
The detection of low-mass transiting exoplanets in multiple systems brings new constraints to planetary formation and evolution processes and challenges the current planet formation theories. Nevertheless, only a mere fraction of the small planets detected by Kepler and K2 have precise mass measurements, which are mandatory to constrain their compo...
The log R HK , a measure of ultraviolet chromospheric emission, is used as a stellar sample selection tool in exoplanet surveys to reduce activity-induced noise. It has indeed been found that above log R HK = −4.7, the Vaughan-Preston gap, photospheric activity increases quite linearly with chromospheric emission [Radick et al., 1998]. In this proj...
