Magnetospheric physics of magnetars

a. The multiwavelength observations and theoretical modelings of magnetars are presented. Magnetars may be young neutron stars having strong magnetic field. They are different from normal pulsars mainly because their magnetic field may be twisted. A twisted magnetic field will explain the outburst, timing and radio polarization of magnetars. Possible presence of multipole field may also explain the rapid position angle variation of magnetars.

H. Tong got his PhD in Nanjing University in 2010. As a PostDoc in Institute of high energy physics in Chinese Academy of Sciences from 2010-2012. Later he worked in Xinjiang Astronomical Observatory, Chinese Academy of Science (2012-2017), and Guangzhou University (2017--now). H. Tong mainly worked on the theoretical aspects of pulsars and magnetars. We are especially interested in magnetars and related pulsar like objects (XDINS, CCO, HBPSR, accreting magnetars etc).
