Fiber array solar optical telescope (FASOT) is a pioneer of Chinese giant solar telescope (CGST) [1], and it is a telescope which will be capable of conducting real-time, high-efficiency, high-precision spectropolarimetry of multiple magnetosensitive lines over a two-dimensional field of view, i.e., giving real-time 3D stokes measurements of multiple lines.
Among them, the most important are: spectroscopic methods (spectrophotometry, infrared, Raman, nuclear magnetic resonance, spin resonance, Mossbauer, refractometry, spectropolarimetry, light scattering and ultrasonic absorption), distribution methods (solvent extraction, Solubility, ion exchange, gas chromatography, liquid chromatography and thin layer chromatography), electrochemical methods (potentiometry, polarography, anodic redissolution voltammetry, conductivity and dielectric constant) and calorimetric methods (direct calorimetry and thermometric titration calorimetry).
This can only be done indirectly through simultaneous time domain photometry, spectroscopy, spectropolarimetry, and interferometry.
Using the NSO's largest telescope, the McMath-Pierce Main (McMP), also at Kitt Peak, scientists will map the carbon dioxide atmosphere of Venus at infrared wavelengths using spectropolarimetry.
Nadine Manset and her colleagues at the 3.6-meter Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope have monitored the eclipse using optical spectropolarimetry. These data provide the unique ability to examine polarization of light in wavelengths in and out of spectral lines, and so they explore changes due to opacity in the system.
Extragalactic cataclysmic variables, the transiting planets, and spectropolarimetry of single and binary stars are some subjects examined.

The reduction in complexity at the cryogenic level in contrast with other ultra-sensitive cryogenic detectors is extremely attractive and enables a dramatic increase in mapping speed for broad band imaging as well as novel applications in spectropolarimetry and hyperspectral imaging.
The method used is called spectropolarimetry. This technique both spreads the light out into its spectrum of colors and determines the net orientation of the electric field at each wavelength.
In 1994 we began a program to obtain spectropolarimetry of as many supernovae as possible that were visible from McDonald Observatory in Texas.
Spectropolarimetry measures both the overall shape of the emitting region and the shape of regions composed of particular chemical elements.
