ALMA observes highest resolution dust polarization image ever taken of HL Tauri’s protoplanetary disk, the deepest polarization image of any disk captured thus far.
An international team of astronomers has collaborated to improve the capabilities of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), one of the world’s most powerful telescopes. Scientists from the National Science Foundation’s National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO), the Joint ALMA Observatory, the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ), and European Southern Observatory have achieved the highest resolution observation since ALMA began operations, in one of the most challenging array configurations. The results are published today in the Astrophysical Journal.
