UV spectropolarimetry

Friday 10 August 2012, by cneiner

It would be extremely interesting to measure polarization directly in the UV wind-sensitive lines, in order to trace the polarization along the field lines, chromospheric activities, etc.
However, as of today, we have no experience with UV spectropolarimetry. It will be very valuable to devote R&D time to study this possibility.
