N2 - We present a moment expansion for the systematic characterization of the polarization properties of quantum<br/>states of light. Specifically,we link the method to themeasurements of the Stokes operator in different directions on<br/>the Poincar´e sphere and provide a scheme for polarization tomography without resorting to full-state tomography.<br/>We apply these ideas to the experimental first- and second-order polarization characterization of some two-photon<br/>quantum states. In addition, we show that there are classes of states whose polarization characteristics are<br/>dominated not by their first-order moments (i.e., the Stokes vector) but by higher-order polarization moments.
