Paper Abstract

Simultaneous detection of the Stokes vector and Stokes images over a broad spectrum can be obtained from an achromatic division of amplitude imaging Stokes polarimeter. This is done through the use of a combination of beamsplitters, prisms and achromatic retarders to split the light into four different paths in collimated space and analyze each beam. Once each beam is focused onto the four quadrants of the camera, the Stokes vector, Stokes images and the degree of polarization across the scene can be obtained through the manipulation of the intensities for each image.
