Abstract

We have designed an image sensor that can capture the first three Stokes parameters at 648 by 488 spatial resolution at 260 frames per second. The sensor consists of a CCD image sensor monolithically integrated with pixel pitch-matched aluminum nanowire polarization filters. The sensor demonstrates a Malus law response over all pixels, and has a relatively uniform diattenuation over the visible spectrum. We demonstrate two potential applications for the sensor. The first uses circular polarization in transmission mode to observe high-speed stress failure in polycarbonate. The second uses polarization in reflected mode to track high speed automobile traffic.
