Abstract

We present here a novel ghost polarimeter based on Stokes parameter correlations and a spatially incoherent classical source with adjustable polarization state and Gaussian statistics. The setup enables extracting the four amplitudes and three phase differences related to the spectral $ 2 \times 2 $ complex Jones matrix of any transmissive polarization-sensitive object. Our work extends the ghost imaging methods from the traditional intensity correlation measurements to the detection of polarization state correlations.
