Paper Abstract

The analysis of Mueller matrix measurement errors, total and for each of the matrix elements, for time-sequential Mueller polarimeter in the case of utilizing different types of Stokes polarimeters in receiving channel are carried out. The consideration concerns of two types of Stokes polarimeters: polarimeter based on four angular orientations of retarder and polarimeter based on phenomenological definition of the Stokes vector. It has been shown that the measurement errors depend on the type of anisotropy characterizing the studied object and the azimuth of linear anisotropy. This gives the extra opportunities for the reduction of errors of the Mueller matrix measurements.
