The dependence of optical polarisation of blazars on the synchrotron peak frequency
The RoboPol instrument and the relevant program was developed in order to conduct a systematic study of the optical polarisation variability of blazars. Driven by the discovery that long smooth rotations of the optical ...
Robopol: optical polarisation monitoring of blazars
The RoboPol program has been monitoring the R-band linear polarisation parameters of an unbiased sample of 60 gamma-ray-loud blazars and a “control” sample of 15 gamma-ray-quite ones. The prime drive for the program has ...
