The legacy of SCUPOL: 850 µm imaging polarimetry from 1997 to 2005.


Abstract (from CDS):

SCUPOL, the polarimeter for SCUBA on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope, was the most prolific thermal imaging polarimeter built to date. Between 1997 and 2005, observations of 104 regions were made at 850 µm in the mapping mode. The instrument has produced ∼50 refereed journal publications, and that number is still growing. We have systematically re-reduced all imaging polarimetry made in the standard "jiggle-map" mode from the SCUBA archive (2800+ individual observations) to produce a catalog of SCUPOL images and tables. We present the results of our analysis with figures and data tables produced for all 83 regions where significant polarization was detected. In addition, the reduced data cubes and data tables can be accessed online. In many cases, the data included in this paper have been previously published elsewhere. However, this publication includes unpublished data sets, in whole or in part, toward 39 regions, including cores in ρ Ophiuchus, Orion's OMC-2 region, several young stellar objects, and the galaxy M87.
