Research on Spectral Polarization Imaging Technique
Abstract: The mechanism and characteristics of spectral polarization imaging technique are presented. The present research and developing trend of spectral polarization remote sensing are introduced. A novel method of spectral polarization imaging technique is discussed, which is based on static intensity modulation adding with double refraction crystal spectrometer. The static intensity modulation consists of two retarders and one polarizer. The double refraction crystal is used to generate interference image. The spectral and four Stokes vectors information can be obtained only by one measurement. The method of static intensity modulation is deduced in detail and is simulated by computer. The spectropolarimeter experimental system is also established in the laboratory. The basic concept of the technique is verified.
