Radio pulsars are rapidly spinning neutron stars (NSs) that emit radio pulses – a telltale characteristic of their magnetic field strength and emission mechanism. Pulsars occur either solitary or in binary systems. Klim Mikhailov focuses on the search for pulsars and sporadic radio pulses at several frequencies by employing the LOFAR and Westerbork (WSRT) telescopes.
