We report 87 previously unpublished optical linear polarization measurements of 86 quasars obtained in May and October 2008, and from April to July 2015 with the FOcal Reducer and low-dispersion Spectrographs FORS1 and FORS2 attached to the Very Large Telescope at the Paranal Observatory. Of the 86 quasars, 37 have p ≥ 0.6%, 9 have p ≥ 2%, and 1 has p ≥ 10%.
Key words: quasars: general / polarization
Based on observations made with the ESO VLT at the Paranal Observatory under programme ID 081.A-0023, 082.B-0029, 095.A-0600.
