Charlotte Sobey Colloquium: Untangling magnetic fields using LOFAR observations of pulsars
The focus of this talk is using next-generation low-frequency radio telescopes (e.g. LOFAR: The Low Frequency Array) to observe pulsars, which provide powerful probes of astrophysical plasmas that span many orders of magnitude in magnetic field strength and scale. Firstly, I will focus on the numerous magnetospheric emission characteristics of a mode-changing pulsar, PSR B0823+26, the mechanism behind which is not yet known. This provides further insight into the relationship between these various emission phenomena and what they might teach us about pulsar magnetospheres.
