VLBI for probing large-scale magnetic structures of stars

  • J.-F. Lestrade (a1)

Abstract

By VLBI astrometry, we show that the two RSCVn type binaries, UX Ari and σ2 CrB, have a preferred site of radio emission which is the intra-system region. It is known that radio emission from these stars is from the gyro-synchrotron process associated with large-scale magnetic fields. High gravity in the intra-system region might favor dense magnetic loops. Interactions in this region between loops attached to the surfaces of the two stellar components might produce reconnections required for electron acceleration.
