abstract

Recent work has shown that the use of a calibrated digital camera fitted with a rotating linear polarizer can facilitate the study of Stokes parameter images across a wide dynamic range of scene radiance values. Here, we show images of a MacBeth color chips, Spectralon gray scale targets and Kodak gray cards. We also consider a static aircraft mounted on a platform against a clear sky background. We show that the contrast in polarization is greater than for intensity, and that polarization contrast increases as intensity contrast decreases. We also show that there is a great variation in the polarization in and between each of the bandpasses: this variation is comparable to the magnitude of the variation in intensity.
