Title: Exoplanets in Polarized Light
Description: The creation of polarimeters with parts-per-million sensitivity in the last decade have made the reliable detection of exoplanets in polarized light possible. Observations with these polarimeters have provided upper limits to planetary albedos and, in combination with non-polarized photometry and spectroscopy, information about the nature of the clouds on at least one hot Jupiter. We review the measurements of hot Jupiters taken by these polarimeters and the information garnered from the HD 189733 and WASP-18 systems in particular. Furthermore, we examine the role polarimetry can play in astrobiology with new forward radiative transfer and surface models (VSTAR) in polarized light to distinguish between atmospheric archetypes and detect oceans.
