Abstract:
Example of Polarimetric observation.


Questions


    Observing_Description:
The proposed science is to observe a jet with NIC1 using the
polarimeters. Observation in all three polarizers will provide the
Stokes parameters of the lineraly polarized light.  The chosen readout
mode is MULTIACCUM, using 1 iteration of the sequence STEP256 with
NSAMP=11 (total integration 256 seconds). The MULTIACCUM sequence is
selected for an effective cosmic-ray removal. We add a broadband
filter observation to check the total flux.
