Paper Abstract

The original method of the polarization monitoring of heterogeneous anisotropic media is proposed. In contrast to the known approaches, the proposed method is applicable for the analysis of structure and optical properties of anisotropic media with an azimuthal variation in the local optical axis orientation with respect to the direction of probing. As a consequence, it can be used for studying the media, which contain anisotropic chiral structural fragments. The experimental examples are given, which show the possibility of applying this method in the study of liquid crystals and tissues.
