Magnetars are neutron stars with very strong dipolar magnetic fields. Many of the observed properties of magnetars have not yet been explained unambiguously, and many of the related theoretical predictions have not been tested thoroughly. Thijs van Putten’s research aims to address this gap in our knowledge, by making numerical models of the atmospheres of magnetars when they emit bursts and flames. He focuses specifically on the way the radiation that is emitted influences, and is influenced by, this atmosphere.
