Context. The innermost parts of active galactic nuclei (AGNs) are believed to be comprised of several emission and scattering media coupled by radiative processes. These regions generally cannot be spatially resolved. Spectropolarimetric observations give important information about the reprocessing geometry. Aims. We aim to obtain a coherent model of the polarization signature resulting from the radiative coupling between the components, to compare our results with polarimetry of thermal AGNs… CONTINUE READING
