Polarization measurement is crucial for many optical applications in science and technology. Geometric metasurfaces have been used to develop polarization-sensitive holograms, providing a new opportunity for polarization measurement. We propose and experimentally demonstrate a hologram method to measure the polarization state of light. A reflective-type metasurface hologram is used to generate holographic images of graphene pattern. The ellipticity and helicity of the incident light are measured based on the intensities of the neighboring light spots, corresponding to two opposite circular polarization states. Benefiting from the advantages of reflective geometric metasurfaces, this device can operate in broadband.
