WFPC2 Polarization Observations: Strategies, Apertures, and Calibration Plans
by John Biretta and Bill Sparks
We outline several strategies for WFPC2 polarization observations, and summarize their various advantages and disadvantages. Apertures and useful fields of view are described for various rotations of the polarizer. Two apertures are found to be problematic: POLQN18 will be relocated elsewhere on WF2, and we recommend against using POLQP15P. Finally, we summarize the Cycle 4 polarization calibration plan.
