Context. The role of magnetic fields during high-mass star formation i s a matter of fierce debate, yet only a few direct probes of magnetic field strengths are available. Aims. The magnetic field is detected in a number of massive star-for ming regions through polarization observations of 6.7 GHz methanol masers. Although these masers are the most abundan t of the maser species occurring during high-mass star forma tion, most magnetic field measurements in the high-density gas current ly come… CONTINUE READING
