Astronomers using the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST) have discovered 201 pulsars, including currently the faintest pulsars which cannot be detected by other telescopes, pulsars coincident with supernova remnants, 40 millisecond pulsars, and 16 binary pulsars.

FAST is located in the Dawodang depression, a natural basin in Pingtang County, Guizhou, southwest China.

It has the largest collecting area for radio waves, with an aperture of 300 m in diameter, and is mounted together with the 19-beam receiver that has a system temperature of about 20 K.

FAST is currently the most sensitive radio telescope for discovering weak pulsars, distant pulsars or pulsars in binary systems.
