We describe a polarization spectrophotometer capable of obtaining a continuous recording of a polarized emission spectrum as well as a polarized excitation spectrum. The instru-ment's optics were designed to separately detect each polarized component of the emission. The system utilizes an optical fiber bundle composed of two branches for signal mixing of each component and two lock-in amplifiers for separation of signals mixed and analyzed optically. Data acquisition and analysis were performed by a low-cost microcomputer equipped with an 8-bit analog-to-digital converter.
