Paper Title:
Study on Measuring System for Characteristics and Distribution of Skylight Polarization
  Abstract

A new system has been developed and calibrated to measure the characteristics and distribution of skylight polarization. With a series of measurements obtained, we verified that the distribution of degree and angle of skylight polarization accords well with the predictions of Rayleigh scattering. The differences of the characteristics and distribution of skylight polarization across the principal plane owning to measurements’ errors have been analyzed and discussed.
