Paper Abstract

In this paper, the formula for the imaging intensity of the snapshot imaging polarimeter (SIP) using modified Savart polariscopes (MSP) is derived in detail by the ray-tracing analysis and fringe decomposition. SIP using MSP is shown to yield an improvement in the qualitative and quantitative carry frequency, signal-to-noise ratio and spatial resolution compared with SIP using conventional Savart polariscopes by the numerical simulation. This study provides a theoretical and practical guidance for study, design, modulation, experiment and engineering of SIP using MSP.
