Abstract
A novel polarization atmosphere Michelson interferometer (NPAMI) based on PAMI was designed. We explain the method of NPAMI for atmosphere detecting and then analyze the NPAMI by Jones matrix; the equations of retrieval atmospheric wind velocity and temperature are also derived. In contrast to PAMI, the NPAMI decreases the number of times for the polarizer's rotation and processing data size, thus, highly increasing the speed of detection. This work has great significance on theoretical research, capability improvement, and would be useful for the application on the passive measurement of the wind field of the upper atmosphere.
