Subject of study. Spatial distribution of polarization properties of objects with linear dichroism. Aim of study. Creation of a ghost polarimetry scheme with a spatial light modulator to control the optical fields illuminating an object with linear dichroism. Method. Measurement by ghost polarimetry of the integral intensity of radiation passing through an object. Numerical calculation of intensity correlation functions for two sets of optical fields with orthogonal polarizations for further calculation of the azimuth of anisotropy modulus of an object with linear dichroism. Main results. A ghost polarimetry setup using a spatial light modulator was developed to monitor the characteristics of structured optical fields. Pictures of the polarization properties of three objects with linear dichroism were obtained. Practical significance. Ghost polarimetry has a lot of advantages over traditional methods of obtaining polarization patterns when studying objects under conditions of low radiation intensity, increased turbulence of the environment, as well as in spectral ranges for which traditional measuring instruments are expensive or unavailable. The introduction of a spatial light modulator into the ghost polarimetry scheme makes it possible to eliminate the need to register the
generated fields. This modification will allow to vary the characteristics of optical fields for specific objects in microbiological and medical research.
