Abstract
Optical characteristics of magnetic fluid are described and measured with the Mueller matrix. Furthermore, the optical activity of the magnetic fluid is discovered. A theory to determine the rotation ratio of two retarders of the Mueller matrix imaging polarimeter is also presented. To measure the entire Mueller matrix elements, due to the sampling theorem, the rate of 5 is chosen as the best and most unique for this polarimeter.
