The Very Strong Magnetic Field of a Neutron Star Is Created by?


A neutron star does not composed entirely of neutrons. On the surface, in particular, charged particles are plentiful, creating a great deal of radiation in the case of pulsars. The strong magnetic fields and rapid rotation of young neutron stars both arise from the contraction of the initial stellar core. A small rotation rate for the core will, by conservation of angular momentum, result in a rapidly rotating neutron star. Similarly, a small magnetic field in the stellar core will be greatly amplified by conservation of magnetic flux during the contraction.

The neutron stars associated with spinning pulsars have magnetic fields whose strengths are measured in hundreds of trillions of gauss. By comparison the strength of the Sun's field
Excellent question! The answer is that a neutron star is not *entirely* composed of neutrons. It also contains some number of protons and electrons (probably about 10% each of the
