Polarized line emission from magnetized accretion flows

Ferrario, Lilia; Wickramasinghe, Dayal; Schmidt, Gary


We construct models of polarized line emission from magnetized accretion flows and investigate how line circular polarization can be used to infer the dynamics and the physics of the field-channelled flow in AM Herculis systems. We show that the line-polarization characteristics depend strongly on field and velocity gradients in the gas. We identify two regions of the flow which can contribute to the polarized line emission. The first is the funnelled flow out of the orbital plane along...[Show more]
