Kiselev, N.K., and M.I. Mishchenko, 2011: Astrophysical polarimetry in Ukraine. In Polarimetric Detection, Characterization, and Remote Sensing. M.I. Mishchenko, Y.S. Yatskiv, V.K. Rosenbush, and G. Videen, Eds., NATO Science for Peace and Security Series C: Environmental Security. Springer, pp. 233-259.

The history of astrophysical polarimetry in Ukraine since the mid 1920s is broadly outlined. It is demonstrated that Ukrainian scientists have made fundamental contributions to the development and implementation of polarimetric methods in astrophysical research, including polarimetric measurement techniques, registration and data reduction methodologies, and a rigorous theory of electromagnetic scattering by particulate media. They have also carried out extensive polarimetric observations of numerous celestial objects and contributed to their physically-based interpretation.
