Objective and background: We present a new version of Bossa Nova Technologies' passive polarization imaging
camera. The previous version was performing live measurement of the Linear Stokes parameters (S0, S1, S2), and its
derivatives. This new version presented in this paper performs live measurement of Full Stokes parameters, i.e. including
the fourth parameter S3 related to the amount of circular polarization. Dedicated software was developed to provide live
images of any Stokes related parameters such as the Degree Of Linear Polarization (DOLP), the Degree Of Circular
Polarization (DOCP), the Angle Of Polarization (AOP).
Results: We first we give a brief description of the camera and its technology. It is a Division Of Time Polarimeter using
a custom ferroelectric liquid crystal cell. A description of the method used to calculate Data Reduction Matrix (DRM)5,9
linking intensity measurements and the Stokes parameters is given. The calibration was developed in order to maximize
the condition number of the DRM. It also allows very efficient post processing of the images acquired. Complete
evaluation of the precision of standard polarization parameters is described. We further present the standard features of
the dedicated software that was developed to operate the camera. It provides live images of the Stokes vector
components and the usual associated parameters. Finally some tests already conducted are presented. It includes indoor
laboratory and outdoor measurements. This new camera will be a useful tool for many applications such as biomedical,
remote sensing, metrology, material studies, and others.
