Polarimetry toward the IRAS Vela shell. I. The catalog.


Abstract (from CDS):

We have obtained linear polarization measurements of stars along the western side of the IRAS Vela Shell toward HD 62542. From 16 CCD fields distributed along the ionization front (I-front) we have built a catalog of 856 objects with polarization signal-to-noise ratio larger than 10. We detect very significant levels of polarization and hence an appreciable magnetic field throughout the region. Composite polarization maps around the I-front are shown. In some regions the polarization vectors are parallel to the I-front, but a perpendicular trend is also evident along parts of the front. In addition, the polarization pattern seems to be affected by gas streaming inside the cloud.
