A polarizing undulator has been constructed utilizing crossed and retarded magnetic fields that can provide arbitrary polarized radiation. The absolute brightness and polarization characteristics have been studied in the visible region from 350–700 nm at 230 MeV of stored electron energy by varying the observation angle θ. Any desired elliptically polarized radiation was obtainable by adjusting the retardation between the two pairs of magnet arrays.
