Bossa Nova Technologies LLC has released a full Stokes polarization imaging camera. The Salsa performs live measurement of the full Stokes vector, including the fourth parameter S3, related to circular polarization. Dedicated software provides live images of any derived parameters, such as the degrees of linear and circular polarization, the angle of polarization and the ellipticity angle. In-house calibration enables accurate polarization measurements below 1% rms deviation. Measuring 3.2 x 3.2 x 4 in., the robust camera features a 1-megapixel, 12-bit CCD sensor, standard C-mount lenses and a proprietary fast polarization modulator. The camera operates at up to 12 fps in polarization imaging mode and is suitable for use in applications such as biomedical imaging, remote sensing, metrology and materials studies.
