A Magnetic Field Study Using Polarized Dust Emission of Nearby Starburst Galaxies
Presented by Dr. Lerothodi LEEUW on 14 Jul 2011 from 17:00 to 19:00
Type: Poster Presentation
Track: Track D1 - Astrophysics
<p>We will present submillimeter (submm) polarized imaging of the nearby star-forming galaxies M82 and NGC253. The data, obtained with the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory in Hawaii, probe the emission from dust grains aligned by magnetic fields in these galaxies, and thus fields in relatively dense regions of the galaxies.
