  • We present 353 GHz full-sky maps of the polarization fraction p, angle ψ, and dispersion of angles S of Galactic dust thermal emission produced from the 2018 release of Planck data. We confirm that the mean and maximum of p decrease with increasing N_H. The uncertainty on the maximum polarization fraction, p_(max)=22.0% at 80 arcmin resolution, is dominated by the uncertainty on the zero level in total intensity. The observed inverse behaviour between p and S is interpreted with models of the… CONTINUE READING
