Tuesday, October 17, 2017

We consider the vector emissivity of the polarized radiation transfer in a Lambda-type atomic transition, which we recently proposed in order to account for both CRD and PRD contributions to the scattered radiation.

Boulder scientists’ work lead to astonishing images of sun’s surface

We investigate the application of 2-dimensional Principal Component Analysis (2D PCA) to the problem of removal of polarization fringes from spectro-polarimetric data sets.

Measured performance of shadow-cast coated gratings for spectro-polarimetric applications

Measured vector efficiency of an echelle grating
Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Roberto Casini et al report on the measurements of the vector efficiency of a reflective blazed diffraction grating, which was specially coated in order to reduce the level of polarization in the diffracted light.
