Be Star Atlas - HPOL Synthetic Filter Data Field Descriptions

HPOL Synthetic Filter Data Fields 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 UBVR synthetic filter polarimetry is HPOL spectropolarmetric data passed through synthetic UBVR filter bandpasses as shown below. UBVR synthetic 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 in degrees

Cal - Polarization calibration code for identifying specific calibration issues

Comments - Any comments that may be specific to listed data
