Polarimetry Tutorial

This section provides access to a wide-ranging tutorial, which aims to provide a grounding in polarimetry and polarimetric interferometry with a view to stimulating research and development of scientific applications that exploit such techniques.

The tutorial material is made available in PDF format and it also bundled with the software itself.
