报告题目:Pulsar Astronomy at Jodrell Bank

报 告 人:安德鲁 莱恩教授(英国皇家学会院士

报告人简介: Andrew Geoffrey Lyne, Fellow of Royal Society, is a British physicist. Lyne is Langworthy Professor of Physics in the School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Manchester, as well as an ex-director of the Jodrell Bank Observatory.

He is mostly interested in finding radio pulsars and understanding the physics of neutron stars in all their various forms and with their various companions using the radio telescopes at Jodrell Bank and Parkes. The main aim of the searches is to probe deeper into the Galaxy, mostly for millisecond pulsars, young pulsars, RRATs (Rotating RAdio Transients) and any that might be in binary systems, particularly with other neutron stars or black holes, that might make valuable laboratories for testing gravitation theories.

安德鲁莱恩教授,英国皇家学会院士,英国曼彻斯特大学物理与天文学院讲座教授,焦德瑞班克天文台前任台长。

他主要使用英国76米和澳大利亚64米射电望远镜从事射电脉冲星的搜寻,研究各种各样中子星的物理以及与伴星的作用。搜寻的目的是深度探测银河系,主要是发现毫秒脉冲星、年轻脉冲星、旋转射电暂现源、以及双星系统,特别是伴星是中子星或者黑洞的双星系统是检验爱因斯坦引力理论的天然实验室。
