[en] This master thesis studies the performance of a new spectropolarimetric technique to determine the degree of linear polarization of auroral light using compact spectropolarimetry and Stokes parameters. The simulations will focus on one of the brightest transition lines of Oxygen in the visible spectrum: 630 nm, and instrumental parameters established in a reference paper. A comparison with previous observation techniques is made, as well as a general presentation of the new methodology. As no instrument was already built, all the developments are based on simulated properties.
