Could the stellar magnetic field explain the structures in the AU Mic debris disk?

Sezestre, Élie; Augereau, Jean-Charles

Recent SPHERE and reprocessed HST images of the edge-on AU Mic debris disk have revealed arch-like structures moving away from the star on unbound trajectories. No model in the literature can readily explain these features. Here,
we explore the effect of the large-scale, stellar magnetic field on the dust dynamics. We show that our study may place constraints on the dust production location.
