Paper Abstract

The problem of analysis of anisotropic properties of objects with isotropic depolarization using their experimental Mueller matrices is examined. Isotropic depolarization implies that the object depolarizes the light with the same degree, independently on the polarizations of the incident light. Description is carried out in terms of the multiplicative model which is a product of the Mueller matrices of homogeneous anisotropic (deterministic) objects and of isotropic depolarizers. The regularization procedure of experimental Mueller matrices of deterministic objects (S.N. Savenkov, K.E. Yushtin, Ukr. Phys. Journ. 45(2), pp. 159-163, 2000) is applied. Experimental Mueller matrices of anisotropic object depolarizing isotropically the light are analyzed and discussed. It has been shown that regularization procedure has to be utilized to improve the analysis of anisotropic properties of depolarizing objects.
