Abstract (from CDS):

We present the BVR broad-band polarimetric observations of 51 stars belonging to the young open cluster IC 1805. Along with the photometric data from the literature, we have modelled and subtracted the foreground dust contribution from the maximum polarization (Pmax) and colour excess [E (B - V)]. The mean value of the Pmax for intracluster medium and the foreground are found to be 5.008±0.005 and 4.865±0.022 per cent, respectively. Moreover, the mean value of the wavelength of maximum polarization (λmax) for intracluster medium is 0.541±0.003µ m, which is quite similar as the general interstellar medium (ISM). The resulting intracluster dust component is found to have negligible polarization efficiency as compared to interstellar dust. Some of the observed stars in IC 1805 have shown the indication of intrinsic polarization in their measurements.
