Magnetic White Dwarfs

Ferrario, Lilia; de Martino, Domitilla; Gansicke, B


In this paper we review the current status of research on the observational and theoretical characteristics of isolated and binary magnetic white dwarfs (MWDs). Magnetic fields of isolated MWDs are observed to lie in the range 103–109 G. While the upper limit cutoff near 109 G appears to be real, the lower limit is more difficult to investigate. The incidence of magnetism below a few 103 G still needs to be established by sensitive spectropolarimetric surveys-conducted on 8 m class telescopes....[Show more]
