Abstract

We introduce a method of polarization-sensitive dual-comb spectroscopy. This technique is a combination of dual-comb spectroscopy and rotating compensator polarimetry, in which the rotation frequency of the compensator is optimized to establish the frequency sidebands of each comb tooth. Thus, we can determine the polarization state of each comb tooth by analyzing the amplitudes and phases of the sidebands. For a frequency resolution of 48 MHz and a measurement time of 726.5 s, the precisions of the orientation and the ellipticity angles of the individual comb teeth are 0.01  rad.
