Paper Abstract

A multiple-channel polarization-sensitive system based on optical coherence tomography was built to measure the Mueller matrix of scattering biological tissue. The Jones matrix of a sample can be determined with a single scan and subsequently converted into an equivalent non-depolarizing Mueller matrix. As a result, the system can be used to measure the Mueller matrix of soft tissue. Birefringence, axis orientation, and diattenuation can be extracted.
