Abstract
The acousto-optical processor (AOP) of a new type for the investigation of pulsar radio emission is proposed that provides for the compensation of signal dispersion in a wide frequency bandwidth. The AOP is based on an acousto-optical spectrum analyzer with a CCD photodetector operating in a special pipeline operational mode (shift-and-add mode), which allows spectral components of the input signal to be added with a controlled time delay immediately in the CCD photodetector. The proposed AOP was successfully used on an RT-64 radio telescope (Kalyazin Radio Astronomy Observatory FIAN) for the observation of pulsars at 1.4 GHz band with bandwidth 45 MHz. The method of direct interstellar medium dispersion measurement on two-frequency band observations with application AOP is described. The measurements of DM for pulsar PSR 1937 + 21 are submitted.
