Polarization analysis version of the electron-photon coincidence technique was applied to completely determine quantum state of zinc atoms excited to the 41P1 state by electron impact. We report first experimental values of Stokes parameters and Electron Impact Coherence Parameters (EICPs) for incident electron energy 80 eV.
