Abstract

The high speed photometer Iqueye has been used at the NTT in January and December 2009, obtaining a series of data on the Crab, LMC and Vela pulsars. This paper describes in particular the data obtained on PSR B0540-69 (the second brightest optical pulsar) and the derived light curve. Conclusions are then drawn about the braking index and other characteristics.
