Paper Abstract

A high performance system for full Stokes vector measurements was developed. The proposed system comprised a polarization scanning generator (PSG) and a high accuracy polarization state analyzer (PSA) was proposed. The PSG generated full state of polarization of light by using voltage driven electro-optics modulator without using any mechanical moving parts. The PSA was employed to record the intensity of output polarized lights in a high speed manner. The accuracy of proposed system was 10-4 for all Stokes vector (S0, S1, S2, S3) measurements in the full state of polarization of lights. An application of proposed system for low concentration glucose in aqueous solution sensing with/without scattering effects was demonstrated. The sensitivity of the optical rotation angle of CB property to changes in the concentration of glucose sample was examined over the range from 0 to 0.5g/dl. The results confirm that the proposed system is able to detect glucose at fine concentration of 0.02g/dl. The linear variation of the optical rotation angle and different glucose concentration at different scattering effects was obtained. In general, the new measurement system proposed in this study provided a fast and reliable method to measure all Stokes vectors and its potential applications in biological sensing.
