Opportunities for Imaging and Spectro-Polarimetry at UKIRT
Near-IR imaging and spectro-polarimetry are offered with the facility instruments UIST and UFTI. Both linear and circular polarimetry are possible, the former from 1-5¹m, the latter from 1-2.5¹m. The IRPOL polarimetry module utilises Wollaston prisms (installed cold inside each instrument) and achromatic (JHK) or compound zero-order (LM) wave plates. Pipeline data reduction software is also available for all observing modes.
