Abstract
This paper describes a snapshot Mueller matrix polarimeter by wavelength polarization coding. This device encodes polarization states in the spectral domain through use of a broadband source and high-order retarders. This allows one to measure a full Mueller matrix from a single spectrum whose acquisition time only depends on the detection system aperture. The theoretical fundamentals of this technique are developed prior to validation by experiments. The setup calibration is described as well as optimization and stabilization procedures. Then, the polarimeter is used to study, by time-resolved Mueller matrix polarimetry, the switching dynamics within a ferroelectric liquid crystal cell.
