Abstract: The combination of optical/infrared interferometry with polarimetry provides a new tool for stellar astrophysics. We review illustrative applications of this technique, point out some of the technical difficulties, and address the question whether interferometric polarimetry could be used in the future to detect and characterize extrasolar planets.
