This paper presents a polarization microscope using an infrared (IR) full-Stokes imaging polarimeter. The IR polarimeter utilizes an optimized interference-based micropolarizer design, and provides full-Stokes images with resolution of 1608 x 1208 at 35 frames/second. The device fabrication, instrument calibration, performance evaluation, and measurement results are presented. The measurement error of the imaging polarimeter is less than 3.5%, and the standard deviations are less than 2%.
