Fig. 2


Optical polarization (5000 Å) from a clumpy dusty torus without warping effects. The top panel shows the polarization degree P and the bottom panel the polarization position angle PPA. The lines refer to the inclination of the model: the solid line indicates a viewing angle of 18° (Seyfert-I view), the dotted line an intermediate inclination of 50°, and the long dashed line a viewing angle of 87° (Seyfert-II view).
