The Magnetic Field of the Crab as Revealed by New, High Resolution, Multi-Band Radio Images

  • M. F. Bietenholz (a1) and P. P. Kronberg (a1)

Extract

We present and describe recent radio observations of the Crab Nebula, which allow us to determine the magnetic field orientation and depolarization at unprecedented resolution. The observations were made in 1987-1988 using all four configurations of the VLA, at 1410,1515,4625, and 4885 MHz. The resulting maps were all convolved with a clean beam of 1.8″ × 2.0″, elongated in P.A. 80°, and the residuals added back in.
