Public List of LAT-Detected Gamma-Ray Pulsars

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

The following is a compilation of all publicly-announced gamma-ray pulsars detected using the Fermi LAT. Each of the detections has been vetted by the LAT team, typically requiring a pulsed-detection significance of at least 5 sigma before announcement. We attempt to ensure that the information presented here is correct, but we strongly encourage users to consult the cited literature as the definitive source of information. Note that this list does not include all pulsars found in radio searches of LAT sources or other radio pulsars associated with LAT sources unless gamma-ray pulsations have been detected. To prevent inadvertent disclosure of private information, Edot column is only populated for pulsars whose discoveries have already been published, not just announced at a conference. Another warning: Edots in this list are NOT corrected for the Shklovskii effect.
