Paper Abstract

The paper describes a high-speed digital ellipsometer, called 'discrete retardation modulation ellipsometer', designed for investigating fiber-optic sensor systems. The new device uses an electrooptic modulator to extract all four Stokes parameters and, thus, does not require lock-in amplifiers. The ellipsometer was used to measure the response of an optical fiber current sensor to test current at 4 kHz. The result was found to be within 10 percent from the expected value.
