Paper Abstract

We present the imaging polarimetry method with phase shifting. The use of a liquid crystal modulator makes this method equally as quick as the one of imaging polarimetry with carrier frequency. This work presents a simple optical arrangement, together with the liquid crystal (LC) calibration procedure and experimental results confirming the correctness of the method and its accuracy.
