Magnetic fields in the Pipe nebula region

  • Gabriel A. P. Franco (a1), Felipe O. Alves (a2) and J. M. Girart (a2)

Abstract

Magnetic fields are supposed to play an important role in the formation and support of self-gravitating clouds and the formation and evolution of protostars in such clouds. We used R-band linear polarimetry collected for about 12000 stars in 46 fields with lines of sight toward the Pipe nebula to investigate the properties of the magnetic fields acting on this dark cloud complex.
