Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe whole-field polarimetric technique, which exploits principles of null-scheme and extends them to whole-field mapping of the measured parameters. Operational principles of the method and the instrument configuration are presented. As any other null- arrangement, the technique is based on finding a set of azimuth angles for the elements, which comprise the polarimeter, such that the light flux falling on the detector is extinguished. A detailed description of measurement procedure with the peculiarities of whole-field exploitation mode is suggested. Theoretical considerations are supplemented with the measurement examples.
