J/A+A/531/A25  Linear and circular polarisation spectra of 2 stars  (Cox+, 2011)

Linear and circular polarisation of diffuse interstellar bands. Cox N.L.J., Ehrenfreund P., Foing B.H., d'Hendecourt L., Salama F., Sarre P.J. <Astron. Astrophys. 531, A25 (2011)> =2011A&A...531A..25C

The detection of a polarisation signal in a DIB profile can be used to distinguish between a dust or gas-phase carrier. The polarisation profile can give additional information on the grain or molecular properties of the absorber. The aim is to measure the polarisation efficiency of the carriers of the diffuse interstellar bands. Description: Linear and circular polarisation and total intensity spectra obtained with ESPaDOnS at the CFHT for the two lines-of-sight towards HD197770 and HD194279. For each line-of-sight we give the average (globally normalised) Stokes I, Q, U, and V spectra. The spectra cover the wavelength range from 376nm to 1000nm.
