Abstract: We present 350 μm polarization data for DG Tau, obtained at the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory (CSO) with the SHARP polarimeter. We compare this result with polarization data previously taken at 850 μm by Tamura et al. (1999). Polarized light for DG Tau at these wavelengths is believed to be caused by dust grains in the surrounding dust and gas disk. Our results suggest considerable structure in the submillimeter polarization spectrum, which is not predicted by current models.
