Paper Abstract

The generalized matrix model of homogeneous anisotropy medium has been derived in Mar'enko et al. (Optics and Spectroscopy, 76(1), 94-96, 1994). Generalized Mueller matrix of homogeneous anisotropy medium, according to Mar'enko et al., is a product of the four matrices of basic types of anisotropy (in terms of Jones - simple properties): linear amplitude and phase and circular amplitude and phase anisotropy. As a result of non-commutativity of basic matrices and taking into account the first Jones equivalence theorem (JOSA 31, 493-499, 1941), it was note in Mar'enko et al. that there exist six orders (polarization bases) of multiplications of the basic matrices. In this paper we study the bases, in which matrices of phase anisotropy (linear and circular) are located between matrices of amplitude anisotropy. We show that these bases are not general
