CCD polarimetry as a probe of regions of recent-star formation

Thesis/Dissertation:

Abstract

Chapter 1 of this thesis details the incorporation of a Charged-Coupled Device (CCD) detector system with the Durham Imaging Polarimeter. The details include the physical characteristics of the device and the electronics and software associated with the device control and data storage. Chapter 2 of this work describes fully how suitable corrections for this effect can be made, and derives first-order results. The CCD performance is examined in comparison with the detector used previously and hence the veracity of the new results is established. Chapter 3 is a relevant summary of the status of the astronomy of the immediate regions of recent-star formation. Chapter 4 describes multicolor polarimetry of NGC2261/R Mon covering the period 1979 to 1986. The data conclusively prove that the polarization of R Mon must be due to effects close to R Mon (approx.14 astronomical units).
