Paper Abstract

It is theoretically known, that there exists a reciprocal correspondence between Mueller and Jones matrix formalisms for deterministic objects. However, in practice, it is mostly failed to determine a Jones matrix corresponding an experimental Mueller matrix of the deterministic object. The reason of such situation is a presence of experimental errors of Mueller matrix measurements. In essence, there is no the systematic study of measurement error influence on results of analysis of information containing in Mueller matrix in polarization literature existed now. In the paper the method of finding of a deterministic Mueller matrix closest (the difference between its element values do not exceed a value of average measurement error) in some sense to initial experimental one is offered and for which the correspondent Jones matrix could be found. Our choice for the deterministic Mueller matrix is based on four anisotropy mechanisms: linear and circular amplitude (dichroism) anisotropy and linear and circular phase (birefrigent) anisotropy.
