Abstract
Supermassive black holes (SMBHs) in the centres of radio-loud active galactic nuclei (AGN) produce collimated relativistic outflows (jets). Space-VLBI observations within the RadioAstron key science program on AGN polarization provide images at an unprecedented resolution, which enables us to study the magnetic field strength and morphology in the innermost regions of AGN jets. We present here images from 1.6 GHz RadioAstron observations of the sub-parsec scale jet in the powerful blazar 3C 345, revealing the complex jet structure at ~200 microarcseconds (1.9 pc).
