Microscopic Magnetic Dipole Radiation in Neutron Stars

Hao Tong, Qiu-He Peng, Hua Bai

Abstract


There is a 3P2 neutron superfluid region in NS (neutron star) interior. For a rotating NS the 3P2 superfluid region is like a system of rotating magnetic dipoles. It will give out electromagnetic radiation, which may provide a new heating mechanism of NSs. This mechanism plus some cooling agent may give a sound explanation to NS glitches.
