29 June 2000 VLT-spectropolarimetry of bright Seyfert 1 galaxies
Author Affiliations +
We present high precision spectropolarimetry of five bright Seyfert 1 galaxies taken with FORS1 on the VLT. We investigate for our targets the new diagnostic potential opened up by high signal-to-noise spectropolarimetry with large telescopes.
