Paper Abstract

We present a method of calculating analytic formulas for the second-order statistics - the signal, variance, and SNR - of a variety of linear Stokes polarization measurement techniques. The advantage of the method is that it is easy to perform and can be used to produce analytic rather than numeric results. Using the derived formulae, we compare a number of different polarimetric designs.
