Research area

I'm researching the radiation mechanism of the radio-wavelength pulsar-radiation, which is still unknown after more than 35 years of pulsar-research. I have searched for coherence in the pulsar-radiation by using the so-called Modified Coherence Function, studied the polarisation of pulsar-radiation, which is believed to exist of two orthogonal modes and mapped the geometry of one special pulsar, called B0031-07.
