Paper Abstract

This paper describes the division-of-amplitude photopolarimeter, DOAP, which measures the complete polarization state of light at rates up to 2 KHz and is being developed for measurement rates up to 2 MHz. Application of the DOAP for fast ellipsometry and for Mueller-matrix ellipsometry is also described. Example results from fast ellipsometry during pulse heating experiments are given. Mueller-matrix ellipsometry using rotating quarter wave retarders and liquid crystal phase retarders is presented along with recent results.
