Paper Abstract

We present a novel photopolarimeter capable of compete measurement of the state of polarization of light, as determined by the four Stokes parameters. This photopolarimeter uses a diffractive-optical-element as a beam splitter to divide the incident beam into four or more components. It uses no movable parts or modulation and thus fast and simultaneous measurements of the four Stokes parameters are obtained. The instrument matrix of this element photopolarimeter is compact, lightweight, and rugged, hence, it can be easily integrated for number of applications.
