The Microarcsecond Quasar J1819+3845: Polarization Observations and Detailed Light Curve Analysis
- 114 Downloads
The quasar 11819+3845 shows exceedingly rapid variations in both total intensity andlinear polarization. These are attributed to interstellar scintillation. The source contains at leasttwo structural components each of which shows variable polarization behaviour. The polarizationvariations are generally, but perhaps not always, coherent over the 80 MHz band setting. The 6 cmlightcurves in the first few months of 2000 hint at a time-asymmetric behaviour as could be expectedfrom an asymmetric source structure.
