Paper Abstract

We present a high-speed ferroelectric liquid crystal based imaging polarimeter. It can evaluate the first three Stokes parameters. Contrary to previous high-speed systems, it only uses a single liquid crystal cell, driven in an optimized way in order to produce a tunable rotation of polarization. Its characterization is presented, as well as its integration in a portable implementation working at 633 nm. Preliminary results are provided.
