Exploring the Magnetic Field Configuration in BL Lac Using GMVA
AbstractThe high radio frequency polarization imaging of non-thermal emission from active galactic nuclei (AGN) is a direct way to probe the magnetic field strength and structure in the immediate vicinity of supermassive black holes (SMBHs) and is crucial in testing the jet-launching scenario. To explore the the magnetic field configuration at the base of jets in blazars, we took advantage of the full polarization capabilities of the Global Millimeter VLBI Array (GMVA). With an angular resolution of ∼50 micro-arcseconds (μas) at 86 GHz, one could resolve scales up to ∼450 gravitational radii (for a
