Polarimetry and Physics of Be Star Envelopes (Review paper)

  • George V. Coyne (a1) and Ian S. McLean (a2)

Extract

A review of the most recent developments in polarization studies of Be stars is presented. New polarization techniques for high-resolution spectropolarimetry and for near infrared polarimetry are described and a wide range of new observations are discussed. These include broadband, intermediate-band and multichannel observations of the continuum polarization of Be stars in the wavelenght interval 0.3–2.2 microns, high resolution (0.5 Å) line profile polarimetry of a few stars and surveys of many stars for the purposes of statistical analyses. The physical significance of the observational material is discussed in the light of recent theoretical models. Emphasis is placed on the physical and geometrical parameters of Be star envelopes which polarimetry helps to determine.
