Magnetic Fields of T Tauri Stars

  • Eike W. Guenther (a1)

Abstract

The magnetic field strengths of several T Tauri stars are derived by measuring the width of unblended Fe I lines of high and low values of g eff ·λ2 using the autocorrelation function. The T Tauri stars were selected for their low values of v · sin i, and large strengths of the Ca II emission component. The derived magnetic field strength are 2.0 ± 0.6 kG and 2.6 ± 0.8 kG for the classical T Tauri stars Lk Ca 15 and T Tau, respectively. An upper limit of 0.6 ± 0.8 kG is found for the weak-line T Tauri star Lk Ca 16. The method is tested by analysing two non-magnetic main sequence stars, and a late-type star that is known to have a strong magnetic field.
