Depolarization of Extragalactic Radio Sources

  • M. Inoue (a1) and H. Tabara (a2)

Extract

In the last decade correlations of the depolarization parameter λd with several parameters, i.e., the radio luminosity L, redshift z, and source size D have been investigated by several authors, where λd is the wavelength at which the percentage polarization drops to its half maximum. Kronberg ET AL. (1972) first pointed out that λd decreases with increasing z, while Morris and Tabara (1973) showed that λd increases with L and suggested that the depolarization is due to the internal Faraday rotation within radio sources. Conway ET AL.(1974), on the other hand, suggested that the λd-(1+z) relation is primary. Recently, Cohen (1979) showed that the λd-z relation may be the remnant of the physically meaningful relation λd-L, though the former is statistically real.
