Paper Abstract

In this paper, performance bounds are computed for the estimation of the degree of polarization for reflected fields with active laser illumination. Bounds are compared for three situations: i) measurement and processing of the complex amplitude of two orthogonal field components; ii) measurement and processing of the intensity of two orthogonal field components; and iii) measurement and processing of the total intensity of the field.
