Flux density measurements of gigahertz-peaked spectra candidate pulsars at 610 MHz using an interferometric imaging technique.


Abstract (from CDS):

We conducted radio interferometric observations of six pulsars at 610 MHz using the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope. All these objects were claimed or suspected to be gigahertz-peaked spectra (GPS) pulsars. For half of the sources in our sample, interferometric imaging is the only way to estimate their flux at 610 MHz due to strong pulse scatter-broadening. In our case, these pulsars have very high dispersion measure values and we present their spectra with, for the first time, low-frequency measurements. The remaining three pulsars were observed at low frequencies using the conventional pulsar flux measurement method. The interferometric imaging technique allowed us to re-examine their fluxes at 610 MHz. We were able to confirm the GPS feature in the PSR B1823-13 spectrum and select a GPS candidate pulsar. These results clearly demonstrate that the interferometric imaging technique can be successfully applied to estimate the flux density of pulsars even in the presence of strong scattering.
