Abstract
In order to constrain models of particle acceleration in Active Galaxies with spectral energy distributions that are dominated by non-thermal radiation mechanisms, we carried out polarimetric observations with the FORS1 instrument on UT1 of the ESO-VLT. These studies involve imaging and spectropolarimetry of both circular and linear modes of polarization.
