Paper Abstract

We describe the design and development of an imaging polarimeter that will simultaneously measure Stokes vector images in the mid-wave IR and long-wave IR wavebands. We present an analysis of the expected errors that arise due to spectral variations in the polarization elements of the instrument across each waveband. FInally, instrument calibration and polarization images acquired in the MWIR waveband are presented.
