Paper Abstract

Polarimetry has become an indispensable analysis tool, in remote sensing as well as in radar metrology. In the same way, it is possible to characterize immersed targets illuminated by a laser beam, by using signal polarization. Here our purpose is to discriminate them in relation with their depolarizing and diffusing properties. Using the Stokes-Mueller formalism and Gil- Bernabeu depolarization criterion, we have synthesized two different types of images from which we build analysis methods. In this paper, we present different results for some characteristic samples.
