Title: Searching for the optical counterparts of gamma-ray emitting black widow- type millisecond pulsars
Abstract: We proposed to perform Gemini-S observations to search for optical counterparts of gamma-ray emitting black widow-type millisecond pulsars (MSPs). Based on recent radio/gamma-ray surveys of MSPs, we select a sample of MSP candidates for optical follow-up. The proposed Gemini- S/GMOS observations will provide crucial information for detailed spectroscopic and/or photometric observations in the future.
