[45.04] Polarimetry of the aligned optical continuua in high redshift radio galaxies

Milky Way and SMC dust grain models are used to model the quasar-illuminated dust reflection nebulae that contribute to the alignment effect in high redshift radio galaxies. The model explains why QSRs have little or no extinction while allowing for the alignment effect in HZRGs to be dominated by dust scattering and still preserving the unification of radio galaxies and quasars. Model images, spectra, and polarization images will be compared with observations of high redshift radio galaxies and quasars.
