Magnetism and Its Magnetic Fields – The Spectrum of Science

Magnetic stars are neutron stars with magnetic fields 100 to 1,000 times stronger than those of typical pulsars (see “Vortex Around a Magnetic Star”). They can cause mysterious short radio flashes and provide energy for exotic supernovae. However, the origin of their extreme domains is controversial. With a new paradigm, it is now possible to show how, when fast spinning neutron stars form, an initially weak magnetic field grows into a magnetic force.
