Search for a Correlation Between Radio Giant Pulses and VHE Photons of the Crab Pulsar

N. Lewandowska, D. Elsäesser, K. Mannheim


The Crab pulsar is a unique source of pulsar radio emission. Its regular pulse structure is visible over the entire electromagnetic spectrum from radio to GeV ranges. Among the regular pulses, radio giant pulses (GPs) are known as a special form of pulsar radio emission. Although the Crab pulsar was discovered by its GPs, their origin and emission mechanisms are currently not understood. Within the framework of this report we give a review on radio GPs and present a new idea on how to examine the characteristics of this as yet not understood kind of pulsar emission.
