New optical polarization measurements of quasi-stellar objects. The data. Sluse D., Hutsemekers D., Lamy H., Cabanac R., Quintana H. <Astron. Astrophys. 433, 757 (2005)> =2005A&A...433..757S
ADC_Keywords: QSOs ; Polarization Keywords: quasars general - polarization - gravitational lensing Description: This Table contains linear polarization measurements (mainly in the V band) of 203 QSOs. First time measurements have been obtained for 184 objects. Among them 109 known radio emitters, 42 BAL and 1 gravitationally lensed QSO. File Summary:
