  • Figure 1

    (Color online) The folded pulse profile (top left), intensity (gray-scale) of the pulse as a function of pulse phase and integration time (bottom left), intensity as a function of pulse phase and observing frequency (top middle), a measure of the signal-to-noise of the pulse profile as a function of dispersion measure (bottom middle) of PSR J1900-0134 (note that as this is the discovery plot we indicate the pulsar's original name of PSR J1859-01). The right-hand plots show small-scale searches to identify the pulse period and the period derivative that leads to the folded pulse profile with the highest signal-to-noise ratio.
