Abstract
A large area thin graphite crystal and a lithium scattering block are used as the polarization sensitive elements of the Stellar X-Ray Polarimeter. We discuss the construction, selection and characterization of these two polarizing elements. In addition, we describe the plans for calibration of the completed instrument and the facility where it will be conducted.
