A Theoretical Study of the Magnetic Field Generated due to the Rotation of Coronae in Active Galactic Nuclei

Abstract or project description

Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) are highly energetic centers of galaxies, powered by accretion of galactic matter onto a Supermassive Black Hole (SMBH). Due to the Conservation of Angular Momentum of the accreted galactic matter, a relatively cold axis-symmetrical accretion disk or α − disk is formed around the SMBH. Highly collimated relativistic jets are observed which are perpendicular to the accretion disk. This study proposes that the magnetic fields generated by a system of counter-rotating hemispherical shells separated by the accretion disk contributes to the formation of these jets.
