A Stokes vector and Mueller matrix formalism are adopted to model the optical train of the motional stark effect (MSE) system. The method to find all four elements of Stokes vectors and optical parameters of MSE system is presented in this article. A new fitting model for MSE calibration is discussed. A method for the measurement of offset angle of MSE is also presented. The nonideal effects of the background unpolarized and polarized light of non-Stark effect are analyzed.
