We consider newborn magnetars as sources of gravitational radiation. We focus attention on the early stages of their life, when, due to the distortion induced by the strong magnetic field, a large amount of radiation could be emitted. Many aspects of the characteristics and evolution of newborn neutron stars endowed with a large magnetic field are still poorly known, and we perform calculations making some simplifying assumptions. Our preliminary results suggest that this kind of source deserves deeper study.
Key words: magnetic fields / gravitational waves / stars: neutron
