Lowering Inferred Cluster Magnetic Field Strengths - the radio galaxy contributions

Abstract:

We present a detailed examination of the relationship between the magnetic field structures and the variations in Faraday Rotation across PKS1246-410, a radio source in the Centaurus cluster of galaxies, using data from Taylor, Fabian and Allen. We find a significant relationship between the intrinsic position angle of the polarization and the local amount of Faraday Rotation. The most plausible explanation is that most or all of the rotation is local to the source. We suggest that the rotati...
