Paper Abstract

We report on the polarization behavior of painted samples doped with a silicone light diffusion agent and illuminated by linearly polarized laser light centered at 532 and 650 nm. Reflection spectra of the painted samples with dopant concentration of 0 and 12.2 wt.% were examined. The degree of depolarization increases from 0.35 to 0.8 under laser illumination at 650 nm and from 0.5 to 0.94 under laser illumination at 532 nm with an increasing concentration of light diffusion agent. The polarization behavior of painted samples was described, taking into account contribution of both surface scattering and volume scattering.
