Paper Abstract

A highly calibrated imaging polarimeter can be complex, slow, or costly. Instead, it is possible to use a simpler system, using only rough angles of a polarization analyzer. Still, the accurate state of the system can then be algorithmically derived. The derivation is based on the observed data, although the Stokes vectors of the analyzed object are unknown a-priori. Such self-calibration requires modest redundancy of measurements and diversity of polarization in the field of view, that can often be met in practice.
