Paper Abstract

The optical characteristics of the magnetic fluid are described with the Mueller matrix measured, furthermore, the optical rotary power of the magnetic fluid is discovered. A theory to determine the rotation ratio of two retarders of the Mueller matrix imaging polarimeter is also presented. To measure the entire Mueller matrix elements, due to the sampling theorem, the rate 5 is found as the best and the unique one for this polarimeter.
