Supermassive Black Hole Jets Through Polarized Eyes

Friday, November 5, 2021 | 9:00 AM

Virtual Event

Supermassive black holes with jets are the most persistently bright objects in the observable Universe. Their massive black holes and extreme relativistic jets are great testbeds to study a variety of phenomena related to astrophysics and cosmology in unique regimes. Polarization is an important probe of the magnetic field geometry, particle acceleration physics, and high-energy emission processes in jets. I will discuss recent efforts to understand these enigmatic objects and answer century-old questions through polarized "eyes" across the electromagnetic spectrum.
