We present the results of the new optical polarimetric observations of the superluminal source GRO J1655--40, carried out in July 1997, with the multichannel photopolarimeter of the Torino Observatory, using the 2.15-m telescope of Complejo Astronomico El Leoncito (Argentina). The observed amount of polarization shows (mainly in the $V$ and $I$ bands) oscillations which are consistent with the orbital period of the system. This gives information about physical and geometrical properties of the… Expand

The spectral energy distributions (SEDs) of astrophysical sources can be modeled with different radiation mechanisms. Polarization carries information on the astrophysical environment ofExpand
Optical/infrared polarised emission in X-ray binaries
Recently, evidence for synchrotron emission in both black hole and neutron star X-ray binaries has been mounting, from optical/infrared spectral, polarimetric, and fast timing signatures. TheExpand
