Physics and Astronomy Calendar

Friday, February 9th 2018
Speaker: Terry Jones, University of Minnesota
Subject: Interstellar Polarization

This talk will start with a bit of retrospective on my career in astronomy, after which I will focus on the topic of interstellar polarization. I will concentrate on work done here at the University of Minnesota, up to current work using MMTPol on the MMT and HAWC+ on SOFIA. The primary science goal of this work is to study the magnetic field geometry in all phases of the interstellar medium, and determine what limitations there are to that effort. Lastly, I will describe some future trends.
