  • On the origin of magnetic fields in stars 

    Wurster, J; Bate, MR; Price, DJ (Oxford University Press (OUP) / Royal Astronomical Society, 2018-09-05)
    Are the kG-strength magnetic fields observed in young stars a fossil field left over from their formation or are they generated by a dynamo? We use radiation non-ideal magnetohydrodynamics simulations of the gravitational ...

    Krivoruchko, VN; Savchenko, AS; Kruglyak, VV (American Physical Society, 2018-07-26)
    An external electric field can modify the strength of the spin-orbit interaction between spins of ions in magnetic crystals. This influence leads to a spin-wave frequency shift that is linear in both the applied electric ...
