SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The invention pertains to determining the state of polarization of an electromagnetic signal. A polarimeter includes a receiver that receives a first polarization (P1) of the signal and splits the first polarization of the signal into the in-phase (IP1) and quadrature (QP1) components, and receives a second poplarization (P2) of the signal and splits the second polarization of the signal into the in-phase (IP1) and quadrature (QP2) components. The polarimeter may also include a processor that receives each of the in-phase and quadrature components ((IP1), (QP1), (IP2), and (QP2)) of the first and second polarizations and determines the Stokes polarization vector components (s0, s1, s2, and s3) of the signal.
