      Lilensten, J.; Bommier, V.; Barthelemy, M; Lamy, Herve; Bernard, D; Moen, Jøran Idar; Johnsen, Magnar Gullikstad; Løvhaug, Unni Pia; Pitout, Frederic (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-08-12)
      In this work, we model the polarisation of the auroral red line using the electron impact theory developed by Bommier et al. (2011). This theory enables the computation of the distribution of the Degree of Linear Polarisation (DoLP) as a function of height if the flux of precipitated electrons is provided as input. An electron transport code is used to infer the stationary electron flux at each ...
