HPOL Filter Data Field Descriptions

Target - Common name of target.

Date - Date of observation in the form YYMMDD (YY-Year, MM-Month, DD-Day). This date reflects a UT of local midnight.

ExpT - Exposure time in seconds

Wav1 - Starting wavelength of data (in Angstroms)

Wav2 - Ending wavelength of data (in Angstroms)

HPOL UBVRI simulated filter polarimetry is simply HPOL spectropolarmetric data passed through a simulated UBVRI filter bandpass as shown below. UBVRI simulated filter wavelength ranges are:

%Q - Stoke's Q parameter in percentage

%U - Stoke's U parameter in percentage

%Err - Percent error for data

%Pol - Percent polarization

PA - Position Angle of polarization

Pub - Reference code for publications if data is published, see List of Publications on HPOL Home page

Cal - Polarization calibration code for identifying specific calibration issues

Comments - Any remaining comments that may be specific to listed data
