Abstract
Some instrument considerations for detecting very low levels of light polarization -- below 1 ppm --are discussed. Recent linear and circular polarimetry of the whole disk of the Sun, at levels down to 3 x 10-7, is reviewed as an outstanding example. Further developments and applications are indicated.
