Probing the ionized ISM of the CSS quasar 3C 277.1. I. Observations

Cotton, W D; Fanti, C; Fanti, R; Bicknell, Geoffrey; Spencer, R E


We present new multi-wavelength high resolution VLA polarimetric images of the CSS quasar 3C 277.1 and analyze them with older Merlin and HST [OIII] images. These observations were made to test the hypothesis that the [OIII] emission as well as the long wavelength radio opacity arise in shocks that the quasar jet induces in the ISM. The multi-wavelength radio polarimetric images allow the study of the intervening magnetized plasma using Faraday effects. The HST [OIII] image potentially reveals...[Show more]
