Brief description

We propose to observe the polarization of $\sim$200 pulsars discovered
by the Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey. This will give the first
measurements of the polarization properties of these pulsars, giving
new information about the pulsar pulse emission mechanism. We will also
obtain rotation measures (RMs), which provide unique probes of the
large-scale structure of magnetic fields in our Galaxy. These RM data
will be used to further investigate a newly proposed model of the
Galactic magnetic field (Han et al. 2006), in which the magnetic
fields in all spiral arms are evidently counterclockwise but clockwise
in the interarm regions.
