Paper Abstract

Synthetic aperture imaging ladar (SAIL) is one of the most possible optical active imaging methods to break the diffraction limit and achieve super-resolution in a long distance. Nevertheless, two-dimensional reconstructed images of the natural targets have not been achieved. Polarization state change of the backscattered light, which is always determined by the interaction of the light and the materials on the target plane, will affect the imaging of SAIL. The Mueller matrices can describe the complex polarization features of the target reflection and treat this interaction. In this paper, a measurement of the Mueller matrices for different target materials will be designed, and the influences of polarization characteristic of targets on resolution element imaging in side-looking and down-looking SAILs will be theoretically analyzed.
