Paper Abstract

A new scheme of adjustable full polarization imaging measurement system was presented in this paper in order to study the polarization properties of light. It realized the measurement and flexible switching of the linear, circular and elliptical polarization modes in the active and passive mode through the combination of a linear polarizer, 1/4 wave plate and angle adjusting device. A prototype of the adjustable full polarization imaging measurement system was developed and tested in the paper. The adjustable full polarization imaging system was mainly composed of a polarization transmitting unit, a polarization receiving unit and an imaging control unit. In the active mode, the polarization emission unit worked and emitted the active polarized light while in passive mode, the emission unit did not work, and the system got image via natural light. The entire system was integrated into an image sensor with compact structure and good consistency, which can be widely used in the laboratory and field polarization imaging measurement and quantitative analysis.
