Mapping radio emitting-region on low-mass stars and brown dwarfs


Strong magnetic activity in ultracool dwarfs (UCDs, spectral classes later than M7) have emerged from a number of radio observations, including the periodic beams. The highly (up to 100%) circularly polarized nature of the emission point to an effective amplification mechanism of the high-frequency electromagnetic waves – the electron cyclotron maser (ECM… (More)
