Paper Abstract

We have developed a new third-order approximation model of Mueller matrix for spatial characterization of the polarization effects in backscattering from highly scattering media. Using the Stokes-Mueller formalism and scattering amplitudes calculated with Mie theory, we are able to numerically determined matrix elements. Specific features of the 2D Mueller matrix components corresponding to light backscattered from polystyrene micosphere suspensions are characterized and compared with the experimental data for different size of scatterers, the scattering coefficient and the anisotropy factor g. The results show good agreement in both azimuthal and radial direction.
