Polarization signatures of unresolved radio sources

Schnitzeler, D. H. F. M; Banfield, Julie; Lee, K.J


We investigate how the imprint of Faraday rotation on radio spectra can be used to determine the geometry of radio sources and the strength and structure of the surrounding magnetic fields. We model spectra of Stokes Q and U for frequencies between 200 MHz and 10 GHz for Faraday screens with large-scale or small-scale magnetic fields external to the source. These sources can be uniform or 2D Gaussians on the sky with transverse linear gradients in rotation measure (RM), or cylinders or...[Show more]
