Pulsar Searching at the Galactic Center
Pulsars are compact stellar remnants with stable rotation rates, supranuclear densities, and extreme magnetic fields as well as temperatures. First discovered in 1969, over 2800 pulsars are known to date. However, barring the Galactic Center magnetar
The discovery and timing of a Galactic Center pulsar in a binary with a black hole (stellar mass or supermassive) companion would permit:
With the above goals in mind, we are collaborating with the Breakthrough Listen team, who are performing an extensive survey of the Galactic Center covering
