dc.description.abstract Polarimetry of the far infrared emission from magnetically-aligned interstellar grains is one of the best ways of studying the magnetic field at the Galactic Center. We describe the HAWC+ instrument, under development for ight on SOFIA starting in 2015, which will provide a major advance in capability for these critically important measurements. en_US
