A holographic Stokesmeter (HSM) utilizes the inherent polarization sensitivity of volume gratings to determine all the Stokes parameters of input beams. A unique feature of the HSM is that it can be designed for spectral multiplexing at a high speed. Here, we report the demonstration of such a spectrally scanning HSM for two different wavelengths. Integration of such an HSM with a polarimetric imaging system will produce a device of potentially significant practical usage: a multi-spectral Stokes parameter camera (MSPC).
