$\gamma$ rays are emitted by cosmic sources by non-thermal processes that yield either non-polarized photons, such as those from $\pi^0$ decay in hadronic interactions, or linearly polarized photons from synchrotron radiation and the inverse-Compton up-shifting of these on high-energy charged particles. Polarimetry in the MeV energy range would provide a powerful tool to discriminate among "leptonic" and "hadronic" emission models of blazars, for example, but no polarimeter sensitive abovedoi:10.3390/galaxies5040072 fatcat:wpcryasbpfbm7iwylq427qkwli
