Paper Abstract

A system of photopolarimeters to measure the Mueller scattering matrices for either reflective or transparent scattering medium between 0.14 to 12 micrometers will be discussed. The system is based on the photopolarimeters suggested by Azzam and the phase modulation of the incident light by photoelastic or Pockel cell modulators. In the vacuum uv the system is complicated for it must be designed to operate in a vacuum. The technique will allow the analyzation of the data by Fourier techniques.
