Optical and near-infrared polarimetry can be used to reveal light that has been scattered by a disk.
Millimetre Science with the Upgraded Australia Telescope
We employ the method of ‘occultation spectroscopy’, which searches in combined light (star and planet) for the disappearance and reappearance of weak infrared spectral features due to the planet as it passes behind the star and reappears.
Strong Limits on the Infrared Spectrum of HD 209458 b Near 2.2 Micron
We report on the discovery of an infrared counterpart to the X-ray transient XTE J1720−318 on 2003 January 18, nine days after an X-ray outburst, and the infrared light curve during the first 130 days after the outburst.
The Infrared Counterpart of the X-Ray Nova XTE J1720-318
The infrared light curve shows a decline of ∼1.2 mag from the peak magnitude of Ks ∼ 15.3 over the observation period, and a secondary maximum, about 40 days after the outburst.
The Infrared Counterpart of the X-Ray Nova XTE J1720-318
The general decay of the infrared light curve can be classified as a possible FRED (“possible” because there were no rise phase data; Chen et al. 1997), which is the most common type of optical light curve.
