Database on magnitude-phase curves of asteroids

The database compiled by V.G. Shevchenko contains results of photometric observations which were carried out in our Institute in 1978-2008. The database is within NASA Planetary Data System and available free at http://sbn.psi.edu/pds/resource/magphase.html.

Polarimetry of asteroids

The Asteroid Polarimetric Database (APD) is a collection of asteroid polarimetry results compiled by D.F. Lupishko and S.V. Vasiliev. It includes most asteroid polarimetry available through March 7, 2012. The database is within NASA Planetary Data System and available free at http://sbn.psi.edu/pds/resource/apd.html.

Polarimetry of transneptunian objects

The database compiled by I.N. Belskaya contains results of polarimetric observations of transneptunian objects (including Pluto-Charon system) and Centaurs published by February 8, 2011. The database is within NASA Planetary Data System and available free at http://sbn.psi.edu/pds/resource/tnopol.html.

Results of laboratory measurements of meteorites and terrestrial silicates

Laboratory measurements of 18 meteorites and terrestrial silicates were carried out at the photometer-polarimeter of Institute of Astronomy of V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University. Phase curves of brightness and polarization were obtained for each sample in the phase angle range from 1 deg to 20-30 deg (Lupishko D.F. and Belskaya I.N. Icarus, v. 78, p. 395, 1989). All samples were crushed and had a similar texture with particle sizes ≤50 microns. Albedos of samples were measured at the phase angle of 5 deg.
