Abstract

We have used the Green Bank Telescope at 350 MHz to search 50 faint, unidentified Fermi γ-ray sources for radio pulsations. So far, these searches have resulted in the discovery of 10 millisecond pulsars, which are plausible counterparts to these unidentified Fermi sources. Here we briefly describe this survey and the characteristics of the newly discovered MSPs.
