The aim of the project is the identification and the study of optical counterparts to millisecond pulsars in Galactic globular clusters, to clarify their formation and evolutionary channels, also in relation with the host system internal dynamical processes. To this end, the researcher will analyze the photometric data already acquired by the stellar group of the Physics and Astronomy Department and INAF-Astronomical Observatory of Bologna at the major ground-based facilities (VESO, TNG, INT) and from space (HST), at different wavelengths, from the UV to the IR.
