Upper Limit of the X-Ray Polarization of the Crab Nebula

  • R. Novick (a1), J. R. P. Angel (a1) and R. S. Wolff (a1)

Abstract

A rocket-borne X-ray polarimeter was flown to search for polarization in Taurus X-1. Although a result consistent with zero polarization was obtained, the statistics were such that X-ray polarization comparable in magnitude and direction to that of radio and optical continuum emission cannot be excluded.
