Comparison between the polarisation signal for a slab and a spherical corona (both with τ = 1 and kTe = 100 keV) for two different inclinations as indicated inside the figure. The seed photons are isotropically emitted from a given radius and they are unpolarised. Upper panel: polarisation degree. Lower panel: absolute value of the corresponding polarisation angle.
