Magnetic fields in Planetary and Proto Planetary
Laurence Sabin(IAC ,SPAIN / Manchester,UK)
A.A. Zijlstra (Manchester,UK) and J.S. Greaves (St Andrews,UK)
I) Detection of global magnetic fields.
II) Characteristics of the field in 4 bipolar objects
III) Relation with the physical properties of the targets.
IV) What is the role of B in the shaping of Post-AGBs and PNe?
Small : 4 objects
Unique : NO other known data
“Death” of SCUBA
NGC 6537: HST vs SCUBA
Hot central star (1.5-2.5 x 10^ 5 K)
Magnetic Field distribution:
- Does not cover all the nebula
- Organized (1 main direction)
- Consistent (small variation of polarization degree & no change in geometry)
Bfield in the SE-NW direction = equatorial plane
Well defined toroidal magnetic field.
