Abstract
The DArk Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE) is a satellite-borne experiment successfully launched in December 2015. DAMPE has been taking data for over 3.5 years during which it has been observing the full gamma-ray sky above 1 GeV. The data used for this contribution con- siders the first 2 years of data within an energy range from 2 GeV to 100 GeV. Among all the pulsars observed by DAMPE we will present the measurement results for the 5 brightest gamma- ray pulsars which include Vela, Geminga and Crab. The light curves and energy spectra, including the phase averaged energy spectra will be presented for these 5 pulsars. From these results we will derive the timing precision of DAMPE, which is of importance for its other scientific goals, as well as the potential for future gamma-ray studies with DAMPE.
