Paper Abstract

This paper describes how FOV errors have affected the polarization measurements of the NASA Marshall vector magnetograph and how a polarimeter has been modified to minimize these errors. The design of a large-FOV (LFOV) KD*P modulator is discussed. The Poincare sphere is used to visualize the function of the different optical elements that make up the LFOV modulator.
