Polarized Light from Star-Forming Regions
What good is it?
All since PPIII...
What’s good where (now)?
Naïveté:The waywe once thoughtthings might be...
Dark Cloud Complexes: 1-10 pc scales
Cold Dark Clouds: Looking Inside(?)
Cold Dark Clouds: (Not) Looking Inside
“Go no further than AV~1.3 mag.”
Dark Cloud Complexes: 1-10 pc scales3D MHD simulation of Gammie, Stone & Ostriker (in prep.)
Thermal Emission Polarimetry
Massive Star-Forming Regions
Massive Star-Forming Regions: Thermal Emission Polarimetry
Massive Star-Forming Regions: Orion
Zooming on Orion BN/KL
What’s the field doing?
“p-AV” in Star-Forming Regions: What does it mean?
“p-AV” in Star-Forming Regions: Grain Alignment Issues
Thermal Emission Polarimetry around Individual YSO’s & Outflows
Outflow along the B-field? (Yes, maybe.)
Scattered-Light Polarimetry around Individual YSO’s & Outflows
Identification of Driving Source (in L1287)
Will the true source please stand up?
Modeling Circumstellar Density Structure
Grain Properties from Polarimetry
PPV: What’s good where (then)?
