11 December 1992 Polarization analysis based on grating conical diffraction
Author Affiliations +
The intrinsic multiple-beam-splitting and polarization-altering properties of a diffraction grating are combined with linear photodetectors to achieve a simple and versatile photopolarimeter for the simultaneous and nearly instantaneous measurement of the four Stokes parameters of light in an arbitrary state of partial elliptical polarization. For spectroscopic applications the dispersive property of the grating is also employed with photodetector arrays to obtain Stokes parameter spectra.
