In his report “Recent Developments in Pulsar Research” , he explained some studies in details: the new progress on pulsar research, new electron density model of galaxy, the research of galactic large scale structure magnetic fields, gravitational waves detection by pulsar timing array.

Prof. Manchester delivered a speech with the topic “Pulsars Celestial Clocks” at the Xinjiang University and Urumqi NO.1 middle school, he introduced the discovery of pulsar, nature of pulsar, gravitational waves detection by pulsar timing array and the Five hundred meters Aperture Spherical Telescope( FAST) . And he patiently answered all questions from the students.

Prof. Manchester has done a lot of works on pulsar research, and has long term cooperation with our pulsar group. This visit improved the academic research level of pulsar group and deepened the students’ understanding of pulsar.
