[7.05] Chandra Results on Pulsars and Plerions

G.G. Pavlov (Penn State)

I will overview the results of imaging, spectral and timing analysis of isolated neutron stars observed in Chandra Cycle 1, including the young Vela pulsar and its X-ray plerion, the middle-aged pulsar B1055--52, the millisecond pulsar J0437--4715, the radio-silent isolated neutron stars in the PKS 1209--51/52, Puppis A and Cas A supernova remnants. Among the results are the fine spatial structure and spectrum of the Vela compact nebula, the multicomponent light curve and spectrum of the Vela pulsar, discovery of the 424 ms period of 1E~1207--52, the phase-dependent spectrum and energy-dependent pulse profile of PSR B1055-52, the lack of X-ray emission from the bow-shock nebula of PSR~J0437--4715.

The work was partially supported by SAO grants GO0-1012X, GO0-1126X and GO0-1131A.
