Thick holographic gratings can be designed to have a strong polarization dependence of the diffraction efficiency. Such gratings can be used in a holographic Stokesmeter that can determine all four Stokes parameters in parallel. We demonstrate the theory of this holographic Stokesmeter and show preliminary results.
