Abstract
An optical-wavelength polarimetry module has been in use for the past ten years at the W.M. Keck Observatory. The module is used in conjunction with the LRIS imaging spectrograph. It provides either imaging polarimetry or spectropolarimetry across the full wavelength range of the instrument (320-1100 nm). The design, performance, and limitations of the polarimetry module are described, along with a sampling of science results.
