Advanced Diagnostics for the Study of Linearly Polarized Emission. I. Derivation

Herron, C. A.; Gaensler, B. M.; Lewis, Geraint Francis; McClure-Griffiths, Naomi

Description

Linearly polarized emission is described, in general, in terms of the Stokes parameters Q and U, from which the polarization intensity and polarization angle can be determined. Although the polarization intensity and polarization angle provide an intuitive description of the polarization, they are affected by the limitations of interferometric data, such as missing single-dish data in the u-v plane, from which radio-frequency interferometric data is visualized. To negate the effects of these...[Show more]
