SNR J0519.5-6902

Title: Radio-Continuum Observations Of Small, Radially Polarised Supernova Remnant J0519-6902 In The Large Magellanic Cloud
Authors: L. M. Bozzetto, M. D. Filipovi, D. Uroevi, E. J. Crawford

We report on new Australian Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) observations of SNR J0519-6902. The Supernova Remnant (SNR) is small in size (~8 pc) and exhibits a typical SNR spectrum of alpha = -0.53 0.07, with steeper spectral indices found towards the northern limb of the remnant. SNR J0519-6902 contains a low level of radially orientated polarisation at wavelengths of 3 & 6 cm, which is characteristic of younger SNRs. A fairly strong magnetic field was estimated of ~171 microG. The remnant appears to be the result of a typical Type Ia supernovae, sharing many properties as another small and young Type Ia LMC SNR, J0509-6731.
