We present high-resolution images of the Faraday rotation measure (RM) structure of the radio galaxy PKS 1246-410 at the centre of the Centaurus cluster. Comparison with Ha-line and soft X-ray emission reveals a correspondence between the line-emitting gas, the soft X-ray emitting gas, regions with an excess in the RM images and signs of depolarization. Magnetic field strengths of 25 μG, organized on scales of ∼1 kpc and intermixed with gas at a temperature of 5 x 10 6 K with a density of ∼0.1… CONTINUE READING
