Polarimetry and the torus

J. Hough, S. Young, A. Efstathiou

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


While the torus plays an obvious role in blocking direct light, and thus increasing the observed polarization from scattering, its role in directly producing polarized flux is less clear. Contributions to the infrared polarization from aligned grains within the torus are discussed.
