27 April 2016 100 kHz Mueller polarimeter for laser scanning polarimetric microscopy
Author Affiliations +
A new setup was recently proposed to perform Mueller matrix polarimetry at 100 kHz using a swept laser source, high order retarders and a single channel photodetector. In this communication, we present the implementation of this setup on a laser scanning microscope to perform high speed scanning Mueller microscopy in transmission. Calibration of the instrument is briefly described and precision and stability over time are evaluated. Finally, Mueller images of a manufactured scene are reported. To our best knowledge, this is the first time that Mueller polarimetry is performed using a laser scanning microscope. We further plan to develop confocal/nonlinear/Mueller microscopy from the same setup in order to produce multimodal contrast images of biological samples.
