Abstract
The channeled spectropolarimeter using a wavelength-scanning laser and a channeled spectroscopic polarization state generator is discussed. This implementation has a feature that it is applicable for the spatial mapping of the polarimetric parameters. Since no spectrometer is used and both the wavelength scanning and the polarization modulation are made within the illumination optics, a standard imaging optics followed by a CCD camera can be easily incorporated for the two-dimensional measurement. Another feature of this implementation is its capability for the high wavelength-resolution acquisition of the channeled spectrum. This feature is useful for the full Mueller matrix measurement.
