This paper presents a 9-channel, spatially modulated partial Mueller matrix polarimeter that uses a spatial light modulator (SLM) to create the polarization state generator (PSG) modulation and a division of focal plane (DoFP) polarimeter as the polarization state analyzer (PSA) with a coventional 2×2 spatial modulation pattern. We demonstrate here how adapatation of the PSG modulation to the spectral structure of the scene can have significant benefits in reconstruction accuracy.
