Pulsar spectra of radio emission.


Abstract (from CDS):

We have collected pulsar flux density observations and compiled spectra of 281 objects. The database of Lorimer et al. (1995MNRAS.273..411L) has been extended to frequencies higher than 1.4GHz and lower than 300MHz. Our results show that above 100 MHz the spectra of the majority of pulsars can be described by a simple power law with average value of spectral index <α≥-1.8±0.2. A rigorous analysis of spectral fitting revealed only about 10% of spectra which can be modelled by the two power law. Thus, it seems that single power law is a rule and the two power law spectrum is a rather rare exception, of an unknown origin, to this rule. We have recognized a small number of pulsars with almost flat spectrum (α≥-1.0) in the wide frequency range (from 300MHz to 20GHz) as well as few pulsars with a turn-over at unusually high frequency (∼1GHz).
