In this paper, an ultra compact highly reliable all solid state photopolarimeter is presented. This innovative polarimeter includes: (1) a set of digital Faraday rotators; (2) a photodetector and corresponding processor; (3) and a novel measurement technique so that the temperature and wavelength dependences of magneto-optic crystals are automatically compensated. The major advantages of this novel polarimeter are (1) highly reliable (no mechanical moving parts); (2) higly accurate; (3) fast speed (< 1 ms); and (4) ultra compact size (e.g., 25 mm x 10 mm x 10 mm). It is anticipated this unique polarimeter can have a variety of applications in the areas of polarization monitoring in optics networks, ellipsometry, non-invasive bio-optic sensors, etc.
