Paper Abstract

We discuss practical design constraints for snapshot Mueller matrix spectropolarimeters, and reveal a robustness problem with existing designs. By carefully choosing the ratios of thicknesses between the four thick retarders used in these systems, we can avoid requiring extremely tight tolerances, though at a cost in overall bandwidth. We provide example designs and quantify the robustness-resolution tradeoff.
