We present a method to image Jones vector by use of digital holography. We show that with unique hologram acquisition, our method permits to image and to calculate Jones vector and therefore polarization parameters. The idea is to use two reference waves polarized perpendicularly that interfere with object wave and to reconstruct separately the two wave fronts. The precision and limitations of the method are evaluated here using a numerical model.
