Detection and characteristics of magnetic fields in evolved intermediate mass stars

  • Laurence Sabin (a1)

Abstract

The role of magnetic fields in late type stars, such as Asymptotic Giant Branch stars (AGBs), Post-AGBs and Planetary Nebulae (PNe), is poorly known from an observational point of view. Magnetic fields are however believed to have a non-negligible influence on the dynamics (via mass loss control, outflows shaping) and even on the chemistry (e.g. extra mixing) of these stellar objects. We are therefore presenting two different types of investigation, both based on the use of polarimetry, which aim at filling the gap between the observations on the one hand and the theoretical predictions on the other hand.
