Spectropolarimetry of low redshift Quasars: origin of the polarization and implications for black hole mass estimates

11 Feb 2021 Alessandro Capetti Ari Laor Ranieri D. Baldi Andrew Robinson Alessandro Marconi

We present the results of high signal-to-noise ratio VLT spectropolarimetry of a representative sample of 25 bright type 1 AGN at z<0.37, of which nine are radio-loud. The sample covers uniformly the 5100 A optical luminosity at $L_{5100}\sim 10^{44}-10^{46}$ erg s$^{-1}$, and H$\alpha$ width at FWHM$\sim 1000-10,000$~ km/s... (read more)
