Photometry and degree of linear polarization of the companion assuming the central object is of low enough mass that its thermal emission is negligible. This very low-mass object is still surrounded by a circum-companion disk. Thus the light received from the companion is entirely scattered light from the primary stars. We used different grain sizes and inclinations of the circum-companion disk, indicated by line style and color. We find that, while we can explain the degree of linear polarization with such a model, the received flux is several orders of magnitude below our measurements.
