Estimation precision of degree of polarization in the presence of signal-dependent and additive Poisson noises

Abstract

We address precision of estimation of the degree of polarization (DOP) from the orthogonal state contrast image (OSCI) in the presence of both signal-dependent Poisson noise due to useful signal, and additive Poisson noise due to dark current and / or background light. We determine the Cramer Rao Lower Bound and deduce from it figures of merit for DOP… (More)
