XPOL, the first correlation polarimeter at a large millimeter telescope, uses a flexible digital correlator to measure all four Stokes parameters simultaneously, i.e. the total power I, the linear polarization components Q and U , and the circular polarization V . The versatility of the backend provides adequate bandwidth for efficient continuum… CONTINUE READING
