Paper Abstract

We have developed an instrument which permits the direct measurement of all sixteen elements of the 4 x 4 phase matrix. This is accomplished using four electro-optic modulators to modulate the polarization of the incident and scattered light. Synchronous detection is then used to measure each of the sixteen individual matrix elements. The instrument and brief theory of its operation will be discussed, along with possible applications.
