A study on forward scattering Mueller matrix decomposition in anisotropic medium.


In this work, we apply Mueller matrix polar decomposition (MMPD) method in a forward scattering configuration on anisotropic scattering samples and look for the physics origin of depolarization and retardance. Using Monte Carlo simulations on the sphere-cylinder birefringence model (SCBM), and forward scattering experiments on samples containing polystyrene… (More)
