Abstract

We made the multicolor Polarimetric observations of 17 RV Tauri stars. We report the characteristics of intrinsic polarization of these stars. The interstellar polarizations were determined by the modified near-neighbor method. Generally speaking, the degrees of interstellar polarization are not large, because they do not increase monotonously with distance. Thus, the characteristics of intrinsic polarization do not differ markedly from those of observed polarization
