Abstract

Abstract A central compact object (CCO; e.g., a black hole) with an accretion disk has been suggested as the common central engine of various astrophysical phenomena, such as gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), tidal disruption events (TDEs), and active galactic nuclei (AGNs). A jet powered by such a system might precess due to the misalignment of the angular momenta of the CCO and accretion disk. Some quasiperiodic behaviors observed in the light curves of these phenomena can be well interpreted within the framework of a precessing jet model. In this paper, we study the emission polarization of precessing jets in these three kinds of phenomena. The polarization angle also shows a gradual change for the synchrotron emission in both the random and toroidal magnetic field configurations with the precessing jet, while it can only change abruptly by 90° for the nonprecessing top-hat jet. Polarization properties are periodic due to the assumptions made in our model. The polarization observations are crucial to confirm the precession nature of jets in GRBs, TDEs, and AGNs.
