SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The invention pertains to measuring the polarization state of a wideband electromagnetic signal. A polarimeter includes a first antenna for receiving the electromagnetic signal and a modulator. The modulator is interconnected with the first antenna for modulating the electromagnetic signal. A modulated electromagnetic signal results that contains a different polarization state for each frequency of the electromagnetic signal, and wherein the amplitude of each frequency component of the modulated electromagnetic signal is a function of the particular polarization state of each frequency component of the electromagnetic signal. The modulator may be configured to modulate at a radar frequency. A linear polarizer passes a first predetermined polarization of the modulated electromagnetic signal through a first output thereof. A first receiver includes a detector for receiving and demodulating the modulated electromagnetic signal from the linear polarizer.
