1995A&AS..112..235A Compact steep-spectrum sources - polarisation observations at 1.6, 4.9, 8.4 and 15 GHz Chidi E. Akujor, and S.T. Garrington Onsala Space Observatory, Onsala, 5-43992, Sweden University of Manchester, Nuffield Radio Astronomy Laboratories, Jodrell Bank, Cheshire, SK11 9DL, UK School of Physical Sciences, Imo State University, Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria Max-Planck Institut fur Radioastronomie, Auf dem Hugel 69,53121 Bonn, Germany Received October 30, 1994; accepted February 17, 1995 Abstract. - We present observations of compact steep-spectrum (CSS) sources made with the VLA at several frequencies. At 8.4 GHz we have mapped all CSS sources in the 3C catalogue (except for four very small sources) at a resolution of 0.25 arcsec. We find that the fractional polarization is rather low: the median value of the individual source components is 3%. A number of sources show striking asymmetry in their polarization distribution. We have observed 18 of the larger sources at 1.5 (or 1.6) and/or 4.9 GHz with scaled arrays at 1.2 arcsec resolution. A number of sources have been observed at 15 GHz to complement previous studies. Key words: polarization - galaxies: active - quasars - radio continuum: galaxies
