Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope

Optical, ultraviole, and infrared follow-ups of Fermi pulsars

The wealth of pulsar detections by Fermi has paved the way to multi-wavelength follow-ups to extend the characterisation of their spectral and timing properties. Being pulsars quite faint in the optical, this has required observations with 8m class telescopes and with the VLT. In this talk, I will briefly summarise 10 years of optical follow-ups of Fermi pulsars and I will focus on most recent results, including the first detection of a gamma-ray pulsar obtained with ALMA.
