The magnetic fields of neutron stars and some related effects

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Neutron stars can have magnetic fields as strong as 1012-1013 G. We review here some recent experiments that provide a direct determination of the field strength, and some calculations on radiative cross sections and radiation transport in magnetized neutron stars. The magnetic field-induced vacuum polarization effect and its detectability, are discussed.
