Compact steep-spectrum sources - polarisation observations at 1.6, 4.9, 8.4 and 15 GHz.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present observations of compact steep-spectrum (CSS) sources made with the VLA at several frequencies. At 8.4GHz we have mapped all CSS sources in the 3C catalogue (except for four very small sources) at a resolution of 0.25arcsec. We find that the fractional polarization is rather low: the median value of the individual source components is 3%. A number of sources show striking asymmetry in their polarization distribution. We have observed 18 of the larger sources at 1.5 (or 1.6) and/or 4.9GHz with scaled arrays at 1.2arcsec resolution. A number of sources have been observed at 15GHz to complement previous studies.
