Abstract
We report the main conclusions from an interactive, multidisciplinary workshop on “Polarimetric Techniques and Technology”, held on March 24-28 2014 at the Lorentz Center in Leiden, the Netherlands. The work- shop brought together polarimetrists from different research fields. Participants had backgrounds ranging from academia to industrial RD. Here we provide an overview of polarimetric instrumentation in the optical regime geared towards a wide range of applications: atmospheric remote sensing, target detection, astronomy, biomedical applications, etc. We identify common approaches and challenges. We list novel polarimetric techniques and polarization technologies that enable promising new solutions. We conclude with recommendations to the polarimetric community at large on joint efforts for exchanging expertise.
