[61.13] VLA Zeeman Observations of the NGC 6334 Complex

E.A. Mayo (University of Kentucky), A.P. Sarma (Eastern Kentucky University), T.H. Troland (University of Kentucky)

We present OH 1665 and 1667 MHz observations of the NGC 6334 complex taken with the Very Large Array in the BnA configuration. We have combined our data with the lower resolution CnB data of Sarma et al (1999), in order to perform a detailed study of Source A, a compact continuum source in the SW region of the complex. Our observations reveal magnetic fields with peak values of the order of 700\muG toward Source A. Virial estimates presented indicate the significance of the magnetic field in the support of the molecular cloud against gravitational collapse.
