Paper Abstract

An experimental method for determining the generalized Stokes parameters in analogy with its counterpart experimental scheme of determining the usual Stokes parameters is presented. The two-point (generalized) Stokes parameters are determined for unpolarized, linearly polarized and partially polarized broadband light beams generated respectively, using a two-mirror and two-beam-splitter assembly.
