Spatial light modulator based color polarization imaging.


Journal Article

We describe a compressive snapshot color polarization imager that encodes spatial, spectral, and polarization information using a liquid crystal modulator. We experimentally show that polarization imaging is compressible by multiplexing polarization states and present the reconstruction results. This compressive camera captures the spatial distribution of four polarizations and three color channels. It achieves <0.027° spatial resolution, 10(3) average extinction ratio, and >30 PSNR.
