Abstract:

Documentation of work in Mueller matrix spectropolarimetry, Mueller matrix laser polarimetry, and near infrared imaging polarimetry is presented. Spectropolarimetric reflectometer instrumentation is described, and measurements made with this instrumentation on Spectralon and Federal Standard paint samples are given. Laser polarimeter measurements on sapphire and quartz plates with small birefringence are discussed. Results from an imaging near infrared rotating retarder Stokes polarimeter are presented.
