Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new excitation mode of a photoelastic modulator previously shown to perform low frequency polarization modulation. Photoacoustic and photothermal polarization spectroscopy is possible with this modulation scheme which has the specific advantages of large light throughput and freedom from mechanical vibrations.
