Bok globule CB56

Title: Imaging polarimetry of the Bok globule CB56
Authors: D. Paul, H. S. Das, A. K. Sen

The measurement of polarisation of the background stars in the region of Bok globules is important to study the magnetic field geometry and dust grain characteristics in the globule. These parameters are important for the formation and evolution of dark clouds. We made polarimetric observations of Bok globule CB56 in the R-filter from the 2-metre telescope at IUCAA Girawali Observatory (IGO). The observations were carried out on 2011 March 4th and 5th. The CCD images obtained from the instrument (IFOSC) were analysed, to produce the polarisation map of the Bok globule CB56.
