Since full-polarization parameter measurement can not be well combined with hyperspectral imaging technology yet , a new full-polarization hyperspectral imaging measurement structure using a dual optical path system was investigated. We utilized the hyperspectral<sup>1</sup> interference imaging technology and polarization modulation technology based on electro-optic effect in our research. The polarization information, spectral information and spatial image information were acquired at the same time, which means the simultaneous measurement of hyperspectral information and full-polarization parameter was achieved. In this artical, the principle of the full-polarization parameter measurement was introduced at first. Then the experiment setup was shown and the optical elements were illustrated. Also,the detailed formula derivation steps of the full-Stokes vector was given. At last, some computer simulation data and experimental results were given. Through the combination of spectral imaging and full-polarization parameter measurement, the detecting information of the object is greatly enriched. This work will definitely be helpful to many optical remote sensing technology areas such as resources survey, environmental monitoring and military reconnaissan.
