Paper Abstract

Polarization holographic element with complex distribution of anisotropy and gyrotropy is suggested for astropolarimetry by means of real time analysis of the state and degree of polarization (also the dispersion of this state) of light that went into the entrance pupil of the telescope. The element decomposes the light incident on it into the orthogonal circular and linear bases. Simultaneous measurement of the intensities of diffracted beams allows all four Stokes parameters to be determined and the dispersion of this state. The possibility of the creation of suitable higheffective and extremely compact element and its application for detection and characterization of exsoplanets is discussed.
