Abstract: Radio-wave scattering in the Vela supernova remnant acts as an imperfect lens to resolve the pulsar's radio emission region. We use this lens to measure the pulsar's emission region. We suggest that refraction of radiation within the pulsar's magnetosphere is responsible for the observed size.
