We compare the observational properties of the circular polarization in Galactic jet sources with that observed in AGN, and outline the constraints they place on the mechanism responsible for the circular polarization. We also discuss the implications of the time scale of polarization variations on the mechanism responsible for the circular polarization.

Macquart, Jean-Pierre (2003)Circular polarization is observed in some relativistic jet sources at radio wavelengths. It is largely associated with activity in the cores of the radio sources, is highly variable, and is strongest during ejection ...

(2014)Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are most probably powered by collimated relativistic outflows (jets) from accreting black holes at cosmological distances. Bright afterglows are produced when the outflow collides with the ambient ...
Intrinsic cross-polarization ratio of dual-linearly polarized antennas for low-frequency radio astronomySutinjo, Adrian; Hall, Peter (2013)This note discusses the intrinsic cross-polarization ratio (IXR) from an antenna engineering perspective in that we seek to identify an a priori (coordinate) system where IXR is well approximated by the raw cross-polarization ...
