Abstract

Imaging polarimeters have been largely used for remote sensing tasks, and most imaging polarimeters are division of time or division of space Stokes polarimeters. Imaging Mueller matrix polarimeters have just begun to be constructed which can take data quickly enough to be useful. We have constructed a Mueller matrix (active) polarimeter utilizing a hybrid modulation approach (modulated in both time and space) based on a micropo-larizer array camera and rotating retarders. The hybrid approach allows for an increase in temporal bandwidth (instrument speed) at the expense of spatial bandwidth (sensor resolution). We present the hybrid approach and associated reconstruction schemes here. Additionally, we introduce the instrument design and some preliminary results and data from the instrument.
