Abstract
Analytical geometry and ray tracing are used to determine the calibration matrix A' of the four detector photopolarimeter (FDP) when the incident light beam deviates from theoptical axis of the instrument by small angles. Detectors of the FDP are represented by their surface equations in Cartesian coordinates. The field ofview (FOV) is calculated as a function ofthe light beam deviation (LBD) in two orthogonal planes, one ofwhich is the plane ofincidence for light reflection at the first detector.
