About the Study

Neutron stars are natural physical laboratories allowing us to study a plethora of phenomena in extreme conditions. Specifically, these minimal articles can have exceptionally strong magnetic fields with non-trivial origin and evolution. In many regards its magnetic field decides the presence of a neutron star. Thus, understanding the field properties is significant for translation of observational information. Complementing this, observations of assorted sorts of neutron stars empower us to test boundaries of electro-dynamical processes at scales inaccessible in terrestrial research centers. In this, we first momentarily portray hypothetical models of formation and evolution of magnetic field of neutron stars, paying uncommon consideration to handle rot measures. Then, at that point we present significant observational outcomes identified with field properties of different types of compact object: magnetars, cooling neutron stars, radio pulsars, sources in binary system. From that point onward, we study which observations can reveal insight into dark characteristics of neutron star magnetic fields and their conduct. We end the survey with a subjective line of open problem.

Magnetic fields play a critical part in numerous spaces of current astrophysics, manifesting themselves in various vigorous phenomenon ranging from solar flares to gamma-rays and quick radio bursts. The strongest magnetic fields are found in neutron stars (NSs), where they control whether NSs are seen as typical radio pulsars, magnetars, dim isolated cooling NSs, or something different. Magnetic fields and neutron stars are accordingly intertwined, and understanding the formation and evolution of NS magnetic fields will fundamentally propel our comprehension of the NS population, as well as the other way around, deliberate investigation of the NS population will assist with understanding the formation and evolution of their magnetic fields.

Enormous scope, poloidal magnetic fields control the spin-down of NSs. Commonly the largescale magnetic fields are thought to be dipolar, as this component diminished most slowly with distance from the star. Soon after the disclosure of radio pulsars it was shown that a dipole rotating in a vacuum emanates electromagnetic radiation and slows down. Later it was shown that pivot of charged NSs makes an electric potential create at the polar caps. This potential is sufficient that it can extricate particles from the NS surface, and fill the NS magnetosphere with them. It was further shown that charged particles can likewise be made in the magnetic field by a split of high-energy photons. Late three-dimensional mathematical simulation showed that NS spin down relies upon the poloidal dipole.

On the off chance that the dipole field and obliquity angle don't evolve in time, it is normal that n=3. In the event that the field is multipolar, with predominant part l, the breaking index is n=2l+1. The breaking index could along these lines be a useful asset to study both the configuration and evolution of NS magnetic fields. Unfortunately, the breaking index is difficult to gauge dependably from observations, because of an assortment of reasons, like trouble in estimating and sporadic conduct of radio pulsars (so-called red commotion). Toroidal magnetic fields can be available in the NS crust. This field part decay and warms the crust, expanding the total NS thermal flux, which is by all accounts a promising component to clarify magnetar quiet emanation.
