Abstract:We developed a code to model and observe the polarized dust emission from arbitrary magnetic field configurations in star forming regions. We found that the interferometric observation will strongly overestimate the fractional polarization under most cases; however, we found that the position angle is preserved with errors that are in the range of observable quantities.
