Abstract: We present an overview of the physical mechanisms responsible for the coronal polarization at different wavelength regimes. We also review different techniques using coronal polarization to determine various quantities necessary for understanding the thermodynamic properties of the solar coronal plasma. This includes the coronal magnetic field, electronic densities, temperatures, velocities, etc. The future needs to acquire better information on the solar corona using polarization will be outlined.
