Paper Abstract

Soft x-ray polarimetry and ellipsometry have been made possible by the development of multilayer polarizers and phase shifters. In addition to the reflection type, a free-standing transmission type was also developed. With the polarizing elements, polarization of synchrotron radiation was measured, which revealed that the long axes of polarization ellipses were not horizontal but inclined. With a transmission phase shifter having 80.7 degree(s) phase shift, all normalized Stokes parameters of a partially polarized radiation from a laser produced plasma source were measured under a laboratory condition.
