Mid- and far-infrared polarimetric studies of the core of OMC-1: The inner field configuration

Abstract:

We present imaging polarimetry of the central 30 arcsec of OMC-1 at 12.5 and 17 μm with arcsecond resolution, together with complementary spectropolarimetry in the ranges 8-13 and 16-22 μm at selected positions, and polarimetry at 800 μm over an approximately 1-arcmin field. The polarization is due to the dichroism of aligned grains in emission in the far-infrared, and predominantly due to absorption in the mid-infrared. The images reveal large variations of polarization fraction and position...
