Paper Abstract

This paper reviews incoherent detection polarimetry as use din passive millimeter wave imaging. The Stokes' parameters are discussed together with the information content contained in polarimetric passive millimeter wave images. Experimental polarimeter data is presented and used to generate images of the Stokes' parameters. The degree of polarization is calculated from the experimental dat and presented. Passive millimeter wave images maximized for emission and reflection are generated from the experimentally determined Stokes' parameters.
