East-West Fourier Transforms of Polarization Parameters of Radio Sources at 1418 MHz


As part of a continuing study employing the Owens Valley Radio Observatory's twin-element interferometer to provide high angular resolution measurements of the various radio source properties (see, especially, Maltby and Moffett 1962; Morris, Radhakrishnan, and Seielstad 1964b; Seielstad 1967; Fomalont 1968), we have measured the Fourier transforms of the distributions of the Stokes parameters Q, U, and V at several antenna spacings along an east-west baseline. The present paper catalogs these measurements, while a subsequent paper will interpret them in terms of the structure of the polarized radiation along a circle of constant declination. We have already published a list of upper limits to the degree of circular polarization in the integrated radiation from several of these sources (Seielstad and Weiler 1968a), as well as a complete analysis of four supernova remnants (Seielstad and Weiler 1968b).

Additional Information

We are pleased to acknowledge the assistance of E.W. Aubin, G.L. Berge, E. Raimond, R.A. Sramek, and G.J. Stanley with the observations. Our task was considerably eased by virtue of the extensive development work done by E.B. Fomalont. The research at the Owens Valley Radio Observatory is supported by the U.S. Office of Naval Research under Contract N00014-67-A-0094-0008.
