Abstract
Phase I of this effort involves the creation of a comprehensive end-to-end model of a novel holographic polarimeter.The polarimeter that can be constructed based on our model will be able to determine the full polarization properties (Mueller matrix elements) of scattering, reflecting and absorbing media as a function of the materials depth.Unlike previous attempts, this system will be a real-time, compact instrument with no moving parts.The system employs a holographic technique to capture three-dimensional polarimetric information from a semi-transparent object, from which an image of the polarization at various depths can be extracted.
