Robust full Stokes imaging polarimeter with dynamic calibration

Abstract

We present a full Stokes imaging polarimeter using a rotating retarder in combination with a polarization camera—a detector array on which a pixelated polarizer array is attached. By itself, a polarization camera cannot capture the full Stokes parameters, but we add a rotating retarder in front and show how it can be used to provide full Stokes images. In addition, we demonstrate the advantage that it can be recalibrated dynamically while taking measurements, allowing accurate measurements even in environments where the retardance in changing.
