Abstract
The Polarization-Holographic Imaging Stokes Spectro-Polarimeter developed by us is proposed to use for the determination of the characteristics of the surface of objects at optical remote sensing. Only one integral polarization-holographic element is used in such a spectropolarimeter as an analyzing detail, which makes real time complete analysis of the polarization state of light (determination of all the four Stokes parameters) possible, as well as the determination of the distribution of the polarization state of light in the image of recognizable object and the dispersion of this distribution, which provides additional information while identifying an object. A theoretical model showing the connection of the Stokes parameters of light reflected from a recognizable object with the characteristics of the material of the reflecting surface of the object has been developed that allows the appropriate correlation connections to be set. Experimentally the possibility of obtaining the distribution of the values of the Stokes parameters is shown for the samples from different materials and of a different geometric form.
