Abstract
This project will develop a visible polarimeter for providing the broadband spatial and polarization information needed for defense nuclear nonproliferation applications. The proposed sensor uses a Savart plate snapshot imaging polarimeter with an achromatic Fourier transforming, AFT lens system. The AFT lens system is used as the polarimeter¿s rear optics in a unique configuration designed to provide polarization and spatial information simultaneously. Phase I will concentrate on the design of the broadband polarimeter and components. In Phase II, a prototype instrument will be fabricated and tested. Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee: The proposed sensor should provide information for heretofore unsolvable problems in medicine, geology, defense, and the environment.
