Optical polarization observations in the Scorpius region: NGC 6124. Vergne M.M., Feinstein C., Martinez R., Orsatti A.M., Alvarez M.P. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc., 403, 2041-2052 (2010)> =2010MNRAS.403.2041V
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, open ; Stars, bright ; Polarization Keywords: dust, extinction - open clusters and associations: individual: NGC 6124 Abstract: We have obtained optical multicolour (UBVRI) linear polarimetric data for 46 of the brightest stars in the area of the open cluster NGC 6124 in order to investigate the properties of the interstellar medium (ISM) that lies along the line of sight towards the cluster. Description: The linear optical polarimetry was obtained during several observing runs at the CASLEO in San Juan, Argentina, during 2003-2007. The Torino five-channel photopolarimeter was used on the 2.15-m telescope. All observations were obtained simultaneously through the five Johnson-Cousins broad-band UBVRI filters centred at λUeff=0.360um, λBeff=0.440um, λVeff=0.530um, λReff=0.690um and λIeff=0.830um.
