Aerosols and the imaging atmospheric Cherenkov technique
The ability to extract energetic γ-rays from the overwhelming high energy cosmic ray back- ground has opened up a new window of observation on the non-thermal universe. By utilis- ing an atmospheric technique VERITAS, an ...
Polarisation of synchrotron radiation from isolated neutron stars
Pulsars are enigmatic neutron stars which have defied efforts to understand them for over 40 years. POREC (Pulsar Optical Reverse Engineering Code) was first written to constrain pulsar emission theories through constraining ...
Star formation in extreme environments
The study of star formation bridges many vastly disparate scales. From the small, nearby, quiescent cores of low mass star formation, to the highly turbulent conditions in which the most massive stars form, to the extreme ...
Multi-wavelength and Polarisation Studies of Pulsars: the Crab, Vela, and PSR J0205+6449
This thesis outlines the findings of a multi-wavelength and polarimetric study of a number of rotation-powered pulsars. Polarisation studies of pulsars are just one example of obtaining insight into the geometry of their ...
