To investigate Spin-Orbit interaction in the liquid crystal, which enables realising spin controlled tunable multifunctional nanodevices. For doing so, we developed a Fourier domain Mueller matrix imaging set-up, where manifestations of several spin-orbit photonics effects are decoupled and quantified separately. The Darkfield configuration is also integrated to effectively collect the scattered light from inhomogeneous anisotropic material. Investigating spin-orbit coupling in the momentum domain provides additional information compared to conventional measurements.
