Magnetic Field Structure in the Small Magellanic Cloud

Abstract

The present status of an ongoing observational program to study the magnetic field structure of the SMC by means of optical polarimetry is presented. Being the SMC more distant than the LMC, the observed optical polarization would mainly originate in the distorted outer layers in the front side of the SMC. Highly sensitive data obtained up to now show a magnetic field aligned with the HI bridge connecting the SMC with the LMC, revealing one of the few detected intergalactic magnetic fields associated with interacting galaxies.
