Vela Glitch Monitoring at HartRAO-- Sarah Buchner Colloquium
The Vela pulsar, like many other young pulsars, undergoes occasional sudden ''spin-ups'' in rotational frequency known as glitches. These glitches are characterized by a sudden (less than 30s) rise in the rotation frequency accompanied by a jump in the spin-down of the pulsar. This is generally followed by rapidly decaying transients in the spin-down and a gradual linear recovery. This recovery provides insight into the internal structure of the neutron star.
