The seed magnetic field generated during recombination

Non-linear dynamics creates vortical currents when the tight-coupling approximation between photons and baryons breaks down around the time of recombination. This generates a magnetic field at second

Magnetic field generation from cosmological perturbations.

TLDR
This study considers the evolution of three component plasma evaluating the collision term between electrons and photons up to the second order and shows that the amplitude of the produced magnetic field is about approximately 10(-19) G at 10 Mpc comoving scale at the decoupling.

Recombination era magnetic fields from axion dark matter

We introduce a new mechanism for generating magnetic fields in the recombination era. This Harrison-like mechanism utilizes vorticity in baryons that is sourced through the Bose-Einstein condensate

Magnetic Field Spectrum at Cosmological Recombination

A generation of magnetic fields from cosmological density perturbations is investigated. In the primordial plasma before cosmological recombination, all of the materials except dark matter in the

Magnetised winds in dwarf galaxies

Context. The generation and the amplification of magnetic fields in the current cosmological paradigm are still open questions. The standard theory is based on an early field generation by Biermann

Galactic Magnetism: Recent developments and perspectives

▪ Abstract We discuss current observational and theoretical knowledge of magnetic fields, especially the large-scale structure in the disks and halos of spiral galaxies. Among other topics, we

MAGNETIC FIELD IN THE LOCAL UNIVERSE AND THE PROPAGATION OF UHECRS

We use simulations of large-scale structure formation to study the build-up of magnetic fields (MFs) in the intergalactic medium. Our basic assumption is that cosmological MFs grow in a

Cosmological Magnetic Field: A Fossil of Density Perturbations in the Early Universe

TLDR
It is shown here that magnetic fields of 10–18.1 gauss are generated at a 1-megaparsec scale and can be even stronger at smaller scales and may therefore have affected primordial star formation in the early universe.

Magnetic Fields in the Early Universe

Primordial turbulence in the radiation-dominated era of the eariy Universe had an associated weak seed magnetic field on all scales of the turbulence. This seed field was stochastically amplified by
