Paper Abstract

The paper describes the operation of an instrument recording a signal from a radiation source scattered by the medium with the known scattering phase matrix. If the recording is made in the absence of background, the Stokes vector parameters are determined So of a radiation source, providing the maximum intensity of a scattered signal. If the recording is made with the availability of the background, characterized by the Stokes vector parameters Sf, the Stokes vector parameters S0 are determined of the radiation source and the receiver polarization characteristics, providing on its sensitive element the maximum ratio between the radiation source scattered signal intensity and the background intensity.
