Paper Abstract

Reported in this paper are novel fibre optic techniques for controlling the azimuth of a linearly polarised optical beam. Polarisation state control is implemented using piezo-electric and acousto-optic phase modulators. A pseudo-heterodyne signal processing scheme for polarimetry is described. Results from demonstration experiments of light scattering from a colloidal dispersion and the measurement of optical activity are presented.
