Precision polarimeter for state-dependent optical lattices — •Muhammad Sajid, Dieter Meschede, Andrea Alberti, Stefan Brakhane, and Wolfgang Alt — Institut f\"ur Angewandte Physik der Universit\"at Bonn, Wegelerstr. 8, 53115 Bonn

State-dependent optical lattices for single neutral atoms are a key component in the experimental realization of discrete-time quantum walks [1], which can be used to simulate complex physical systems [2]. A polarization based state-dependent lattice requires the dynamical synthesization of arbitrary polarization states of the laser beams forming the lattice with a very high precision.

We will report on a rotating quarter-wave-plate Stokes polarimeter that will be used as an independent measure of the lattice polarization in order to monitor the polarization synthesis. The benefit of such a dynamical polarimeter with a single photo detector consists in the absence of calibration errors between different detectors which are used in static polarimeters.
