high-B radio pulsar

(pulsar with a strong magnetic field)

A high-B radio pulsar (HBRP) is an object identified as a pulsar which shows a strong magnetic field (high B), in the range of those of magnetars, anomalous X-ray pulsars, and soft gamma repeaters (1013 gauss or above). All these are presumed neutron stars, but the term HBRP is used if it shows as (and is discovered as) a "normal" pulsar rather than from X-ray pulses or soft gamma-ray bursts.
