Paper Abstract

Several single-valued metrics have been introduced for the assessment of depolarization including the Depolarization Index and the Average Degree of Polarization (obtained by averaging the exiting degree of polarization over all incident polarization states). These metrics are compared then a more complete representation of depolarization is introduced, the Degree of Polarization Surfaces, which help elucidate the structure of the depolarization degrees of freedom within the Mueller calculus.
