Amplification of magnetic fields in the centers of cluster cooling flows.

In 1990, Soker & Sarazin predicted that cooling Nows in clusters of galaxies would compress ambient intracluster magnetic Delds until the magnetic pressure becomes comparable to the local thermal pressure. Strong, centrally enhanced magnetic Delds were subsequently detected through Faraday rotation...
