A vacuum Mueller matrix polarimeter is developed for measurement of the Mueller matrix of samples, partially, calcium fluoride materials in 157nm wavelength. From the measured Mueller matrix with no sample present, we found the influence of absorption error in the detector and orientation error in quarter-wave plates on measurement results. The birefringence of samples is determined from the Mueller matrix. Experimental results show this Mueller matrix polarimeter is available to be used for characterizing the intrinsic birefringence of materials for processed lens at the 157nm lithography.
