Paper Abstract

We present the results of efforts to understand the polarimetric characterization properties of gold- and silver-coated mirrors, furthering our abilities for design and calibration of optical sensors. A FT spectropolarimeter was used to determine the experimental Mueller Matrix for both the gold- and silver-coated mirrors, thus fully characterizing the polarization altering properties of each sample. Presented is the total, linear and circular polarizance for incident angles ranging from 15° to 60° and between 0.7 and 1.1 μm.
