Photometry and polarimetry of AM Herculis in its faint state
Infrared and optical photometry and polarimetry of AM Herculis during the faint state of its long-term light variations are presented. The contributions of the two stellar photospheres are estimated and the distance of the ...
Infrared reflection nebula in W75N
A new infrared reflection nebula is identified in the W75N region. The K-band polarization map shows a centrosymmetric pattern of the vectors extending over a region 2 arcmin in size, with large values of degrees of ...
The polarization of NGC 1068
Broad-band polarimetry of NGC 1068 over the wavelength range 0.36 - 4.8 μm is presented, together with high-resolution spectropolarimetry of the Hβ, [O III] and Hα, [N II] regions of the spectrum. The authors recognize ...
