Atmospheric parameters determined via spectral modelling are unavailable for many of the known magnetic early B-type stars. We utilized high-resolution spectra together with NLTE models to measure effective temperatures $T_{\rm eff}$ and surface gravities $\log{g}$ of stars for which these measurements are not yet available. We find good agreement between our $T_{\rm eff}$ measurements and previous results obtained both photometrically and spectroscopically. For $\log{g}$, our results are… Expand

Spectropolarimetric follow-up of 8 rapidly rotating, X-ray bright FK Comae candidates
Our understanding of the evolved, rapidly rotating, magnetically active, and apparently single FK Comae stars is significantly hindered by their extreme rarity: only two stars in addition to FK ComExpand
The magnetic early B-type stars – IV. Breakout or leakage? H α emission as a diagnostic of plasma transport in centrifugal magnetospheres
Rapidly rotating early-type stars with strong magnetic fields frequently show H$\alpha$ emission originating in Centrifugal Magnetospheres (CMs), circumstellar structures in which centrifugal supportExpand
The magnetic early B-type stars - III. A main-sequence magnetic, rotational, and magnetospheric biography
Magnetic confinement of stellar winds leads to the formation of magnetospheres, which can be sculpted into centrifugal magnetospheres (CMs) by rotational support of the corotating plasma. TheExpand
The effects of surface fossil magnetic fields on massive star evolution - II. Implementation of magnetic braking in MESA and implications for the evolution of surface rotation in OB stars
The time evolution of angular momentum and surface rotation of massive stars is strongly influenced by fossil magnetic fields via magnetic braking. We present a new module containing a simple,Expand

The fifth main-sequence magnetic B-type star showing coherent radio emission: Is this really a rare phenomenon?
We report the discovery of intense, highly directional radio emission from the Bp star HD 35298, which we interpret as the consequence of Electron Cyclotron Maser Emission (ECME). The star wasExpand

B fields in OB stars (BOB): on the detection of weak magnetic fields in the two early B-type stars beta CMa and epsilon CMa Possible lack of a "magnetic desert" in massive stars
Only a small fraction of massive stars seem to host a measurable structured magnetic field, whose origin is still unknown and whose implications for stellar evolution still need to be assessed.Expand
