Observations have been conducted on the recently discovered short period pulsar PSR 1951+32 in the radio nebula CTB 80 in an attempt to detect pulsed infrared emission. A strong upper limit is placed on any pulsed, infrared component below that expected from a formally proposed optical candidate for the pulsar. This limit is consistent with proposed scaling laws for high-energy emission.
