Paper Abstract

A Mueller matrix imaging method by use of the characteristics of digital holography is proposed. In the proposed method, only two exposures are required to obtain the Mueller matrix. The Mueller matrix can be calculated from Stokes vectors. Stokes vectors can be obtained from two fully-complex amplitude distributions. Fully complex amplitude distributions can be obtained by digital holography. The optical experiments by using two kinds of specimens which are four linear polarizers and a quarter wave plate are shown to demonstrate the proposed method.
