Fig. 4


Diagrams of flux density at 150 MHz S150 versus period P. Included are all the ATNF catalogue pulsars that have reported periods and flux densities. The LOFAR sensitivity curves for DM = 0, 10, 100, 1000 pc cm-3 are drawn, with the error contour for the most realistic DM for M 33/M 81/M 82, at 1000 pc cm-3. The most-luminous Galactic pulsar, PSR J1305-6455, is denoted with a star. Panel a) shows that our survey was sensitive enough to detect almost the entire Galactic pulsar population, had they been in the field of view. In Panel b) we illustrate our sensitivity to these same pulsars at the actual distance of M 82/M 81 (left y-axis) and M 33 (right y-axis).
