VLBI Polarization Calibration

The following documents, written by current and former members of our research group, pertain to the calibration of polarization observations using Very Long Baseline Interferometry.

  • Scott Aaron's EVN memo on linear polarization calibration is an excellent supplement to the AIPS cookbook and is useful when calibrating EVN or VLBA data. Download the PDF
  • We have pioneered the observation of circular polarization from Active Galactic Nuclei using the VLBA. A paper describing our results and calibration techniques has been accepted for publication in the Astronomical Journal. Download the PDF
