Paper Abstract

Method of using the matrix method optics of light-scattering media for research the polarization characteristics of objects with dynamically varying geometrical optic parameters is described in this work. The results of measuring the Mueller matrix components of nematic liquid crystal (NLC) during the activity of electrical impulse are given. The character of transformation matrix (MT) and light scattering matrix (LSM) symmetry of exploring medium is determined. General analysis of nonzero components time dependencies of NLC Mueller matrix is given. The possibility of using the electro controllable liquid crystal as the model object for exploring the influence of the shape, size and orientation of nonspherical particles on the size of their Mueller matrix components is noted.
