Paper Abstract

We examine the joint probability distribution of polarization information; specifically the joint distribution of the degree of polarization and the three Stokes parameters, as it relates to material properties in a highly scattering, highly depolarizing transmission geometry, making use of the Observable Polarization Sphere (OPS) for visualization of this distribution. We comment on the role of the source’s coherence in terms of the polarization properties of the resulting speckle field, and describe numerical and experimental results of second order Stokes vector element correlations and their applicability to material discrimination.
