A Mueller matrix spectropolarimeter operating between 400-900nm has been developed for optical element characterization at The University of Alabama in Huntsville. Mueller matrices are measured as a function of wavelength and the spectral behavior of the polarization properties can be determined. Measurements of an achromatic retarder in transmission, a reflective beamsplitter, and the electro-optic dispersion of a spatial light modulator will be presented.
