RM Grid Task Force

Polarised sources detected in a single mosaic from LoTSS

This field from the LOFAR Two-Metre Sky Survey (LoTSS) shows seven radio galaxies detected in polarisation by LOFAR. The high resolution of LOFAR, combined with its good surface-brightness sensitivity, allows detailed studies of the magnetic field in these objects to be performed at low frequencies for the first time.

The goal of the MKSP RM Grid Task force is to use the combined expertise and resources of the MKSP Working Groups to produce a catalog of Faraday rotation measures of discrete radio sources from the LOFAR Two-Metre Sky Survey (LoTSS) data. This catalog will then be used by the various MKSP working groups to address the particular science goals of the individual working groups.
