MAGCOW - The Magnetised Cosmic Web

9 - Industry, innovation and infrastructure; Research Projects; 2017; 2018; 2019; 2020; 2021; 2022

MAGCOW will investigate the origin of extragalactic magnetic fields, combining new big cosmological simulations and radio observations. Cosmic matter is distributed in a web consistent of clusters, filaments, walls and voids. While the dark-matter skeleton of the cosmic web is closely traced by galaxies and galaxy clusters, the gaseous distribution has never been directly imaged . The developments proposed in MAGCOW are designed to address this complexity, and turn future radio observations, thanks to the new generation of radio instruments that will survey the sky, into a unique probe of the growth of magnetic fields and of the acceleration of particles.
