Abstract: Dual-beam polarimetry is an effective tool for high dynamic range imaging of circumstellar regions. We have achieved scattered light suppression exceeding 5 magnitudes over angular scales where current adaptive optics systems are not useful. This paper describes some techniques and algorithms that are generally helpful for detecting faint circumstallar scattered light associated with disk systems.
