Near-infrared Hubble Space Telescope polarimetry of a complete sample of narrow-line radio galaxies

Abstract

We present an analysis of 2.05 μm Hubble Space Telescope polarimetric data for a sample of 13 nearby Fanaroff–Riley type II (FRII) 3CR radio sources (0.03< z< 0.11) that are classified as narrow-line radio galaxies (NLRG) at optical wavelengths. We find that the compact cores of the NLRG in our sample are intrinsically highly polarized in the near-infrared… (More)
