Abstract

An experimental snapshot Mueller matrix polarimeter based on wavelength polarization coding is used to get a time-resolved description of electric-field-induced fast transition within a ferroelectric liquid-crystal cell. The parameters extracted from experimental Mueller matrices are linked to the molecule director distribution to further determine the average trajectory and the collective behavior of these molecules while they switch over to another state.
