While the problem of grain alignment was posed more than 60 years ago the quantitative model of grain alignment that can account for the observed polarization arising from aligned grains has been formulated only recently. The quantitative predictions of the radiative torque mechanism, which is currently accepted as the dominant mechanism of grain alignment… CONTINUE READING
