28.04.2017 - Dr. Andrew Fletcher
Dr. Andrew Fletcher from the Newcastle University, UK, stayed at the research group for Astronomy of Prof. Dettmar for four weeks. He started his visit on April 18th and left at May 15th, 2017. In this time he collaborated with the people from Bochum on magnetic fields.
A highlight of his stay was the seminar talk with the title "Magnetic field in the multi-phase interstellar medium" on May 4th, 2017.
Abstract: I will review what is known about the general properties of magnetic fields in the diffuse interstellar medium. New results will then be presented, addressing questions such as:
is the mean, large-scale, magnetic field preferentially connected to a particular phase of the ISM? what effect does the generation of the mean-field have on ISM structure? what are the space and time correlations of random fluctuations in the ISM? how are these correlation scales related to observables?
