Circumstellar Polarimetry

  • A. M. Magalhães (a1), A. C. Carciofi (a1) and D. B. Seriacopi (a1)

Abstract

Starlight polarization provides insight into the physical mechanisms in and around the source as well as its geometry, whether or not the source is resolved. In this talk we will review mechanisms that polarize light in stellar envelopes. The observations and modeling can be used to probe the physics of the circumstellar environment as well as its relation to the ambient interstellar environment.
