Abstract

Magnetars, the most highly magnetic of the neutron star zoo, will serve as a prime science target for new missions surveying the MeV window. This paper outlines the core questions pertaining to magnetars and quantum electrodynamic physics that can be addressed by new technologies with spectropolarimetric capability in the 0.1-100 MeV energy range.
