Submillimeter polarization and variability of quasar PKS 1830-211

25 Oct 2018 Marti-Vidal I. Muller S.

Polarization from active galactic nuclei is interpreted as a signpost of the role of magnetic fields in the launch and collimation of their relativistic radio jets. Here, we report the detection of a clear polarization signal from ALMA observations of the gravitationally lensed quasar PKS 1830-211 at submillimeter wavelengths (Band 9, 650 GHz)... (read more)
