Paper Abstract

A new high sensitivity polarimeter has been established based on a fast change of the geometrical phase caused by a small change of an examined medium birefringence. In this setup sensitivity and measurement range can be controlled. The obtained sensitivity amounts up to 800 with regard to classical polariscopes. The proposed setup enables carrying out real time measurements. Stability and measurements resolution have been examined. Numerical simulations and measurements were performed.
