Optical and near-infrared spectropolarimetry of the infrared-luminous galaxy IRAS 23060+0505
We present optical and near-IR spectropolarimetry of the type 2 infrared-luminous galaxy IRAS 23060+0505, which clearly shows both broad Hα and Paalpha in polarized flux. The full widths at half maximum (FWHM) of these ...
Near-infrared and millimetre polarimetry of CEN A
We present near-infrared polarization images of the nuclear region of CenA, and millimetre polarimetry of the nucleus. In the near-infrared the polarization vectors mainly lie along the dust lane, with the polarization ...
The appearance of broad H alpha in BL Lacertae
We present optical spectropolarimetry confirming Vermeulen et al.'s recent discovery of a broad Hα emission line in BL Lacertae. This feature, which is present at about the same strength in spectra taken two days apart, ...
Powering the Broad H alpha Line in BL Lacertae
(Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 1996)
Scattered broad optical lines in the polarized flux spectrum of the FR II galaxy 3C 321
The authors present optical/infrared broad-band filter polarimetry and optical spectropolarimetry of the powerful FR II galaxy 3C 321. The latter observations reveal a scattered broad component to the Hα emission line, ...
Polarimetry and modelling of narrow-line active galaxies
We present optical spectropolarimetry along with optical and infrared broad-band filter polarimetry of selected warm [f(25 μm)/f(60 μm)>=0.3] IRAS galaxies and other known Seyfert 2 galaxies. Broad lines in polarized flux ...
