The RW Aur microjet: testing MHD disk wind models

C. Dougados, S. Cabrit, L. Lopez-Martin, P. J. V. Garcia, D. O'Brien

We conduct a detailed comparison between the kinematics, morpology and excitation conditions of the RW Aur microjet on scales 〈 200 AU with predictions from stationary, self-similar, cold disk wind solutions. Implications for launching and ionization mechanisms of jets in young stars are discussed.
