J/AZh/94/598        Magnetic fields of radio pulsars           (Nikitina+, 2017)

Magnetic fields of radio pulsars. Nikitina E.B., Malov I.F. <Astron. Zh. 94, 598 (2017)> =2017ARep...61..591N =2017AZh....94..598N (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Pulsars ; Radio sources Abstract: The mechanism of magnetodipole braking of radio pulsars is used to calculate new values of the surface magnetic fields of neutron stars. The angles β between the spin axes and magnetic moments of the neutron stars were estimated for 376 radio pulsars using three different methods. It is shown that small inclinations of magnetic axes dominate. The equatorial magnetic fields for the considered sample of pulsars are calculated using the β values obtained. As a rule, these magnetic fields are a factor of a few higher than the corresponding values in known catalogs. Description: Some methods for calculations of the angle β between rotation and magnetic axes were applied to obtain the values of β for 376 radio pulsars. File Summary:
