DY2W01 - Dynamos in planets and stars - similarities and differences

Spectropolarimetry can provide observational constraints on the strength and morphology of the large-scale magnetic field in Sun-like stars. To date, very few measurements have been available for stars that are more evolved than the Sun. Recent evidence suggests a substantial transformation of the large-scale field in older stars, so new measurements are finally becoming available. I will present the latest spectropolarimetric observations from the Large Binocular Telescope, and offer an interpretation that yields a new understanding of the evolution of Sun-like stars across this magnetic transition.
