Abstract

Continuum observations of the southern extension of the radio Arc located near 1~0.2° have been carried out at λ20 and 6cm using the VLA in its hybrid B/C and C/D array configurations. A number of long and narrow filaments have been identified on the negative latitude side of the plane. Some of the filaments appear to extend continuously into the radio continuum Arc and suggesting strongly that they are associated physically with the Arc. Other filaments appear isolated and thus have characteristics similar to those of the radio “threads” which have been seen near the Galactic center. These new threads and filaments are highly polarized at λ6cm and show rotation measures which vary between 300 and 3000 rad m−2. The details present in the high-resolution images of this region strengthen the hypotheses that the large field strength is dynamically important and that the large-scale geometry of the magnetic field is poloidal near the Galactic center.
