Abstract

We present observations of the circular polarization of the recombination line maser in MWC 349. Six good quality Ha30α spectra were obtained during 2010 – 2011 which show that the Zeeman features are complex, time variable, and usually different for the blue- and red-shifted maser spikes. We propose that the magnetic field, located in the corona of the circumstellar disk, has toroidal and radial components. It is plausibly generated in a disk dynamo.
