A simple image-subtraction technique for further enhancement of the visibility depth in polarized imaging of surfaces immersed in scattering media is proposed and assessed. The technique is based on active illumination with circular or linear polarization states and image detection in the original and the opposite, or orthogonal, states. Contrast enhancement is achieved by subtraction of a fraction of the image recorded in the original state from that recorded in the opposite state. Results… CONTINUE READING
