Abstract The design and operation of a simple inline optical electron polarimeter is presented. It is based on exchange excitation of ground state neon atoms. The electron polarization is determined from the degree of circular polarization of the subsequent 2{ital p}{sup 5}3{ital p}{sup 3}{ital D}{sub 3}{r_arrow}2{ital p}{sup 5}3{ital s}{sup 3}{ital P}{sub 2} (6402 A) fluorescence. This device can characterize both longitudinally and transversely polarized electron beams in a nondestructive fashion, and is inexpensive and easily constructed. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
