Ferdinando Patat - Optical polarimetry of explosive transients

Optical polarimetry of explosive transients

by Ferdinando Patat (ESO - Garching)

Abstract: Polarimetry is a photon-starving technique which allows to extract geometrical information that cannot be obtained with any other method. In my seminar I will briefly review the basic concepts, present the application to explosive events (mainly on supernovae) and discuss the results obtained so far. I will also briefly go through the cases of kilonovae, other exotic transients and a recent application to the problem of the spinning axis tilt of a BH in a binary system.
