These X-rays are absorbed and scattered by the wind of η Carinae A. X-rays from the wind-wind collision also reflect off the cold material in the walls of the Homunculus and appears as a hot, heavily absorbed emission.

However, some models demonstrated the tendency of polarimetric color to decrease, i.e. get more blue, with increasing size, albedo (e.g. icy), and transparency of the material (crystallinity), whereas more absorbing materials typically show an increase in polarzation with wavelength, called a red polarization slope .

Light from the central (proto)star is absorbed by dust in the circumstellar environment and subsequently re-emitted at longer wavelengths, so a “redder” SED, resulting from more material in the circumstellar environment, is thought to be indicative of an earlier evolutionary phase.
