Division of focal plane RGB full-Stokes imaging polarimeter

Posted on 2020-05-15 - 14:02
We calibrate and test a division-of-focal-plane RGB full-Stokes imaging polarimeter in a variety of indoor and outdoor environments. The polarimeter, acting as a polarization camera, utilizes a low dispersion micro-retarder array on top of a sensor with Bayer filters and wire-grid linear polarizers. We also present the design and fabrication of the micro-retarder array and the assembly of the camera and validate the performance of the camera by taking multiple RGB full-Stokes images and videos. Our camera has a small form factor due to its single sensor design and the unique capability to measure the intensity, color, and polarization of an optical field in a single shot.
