Paper Abstract

Rotating orthogonal polarization imaging of tissue consists of illumination in a single polarization state and detection in the orthogonal state. Synchronously rotating the illumination and orthogonal detection provides an image that is free from surface reflections and is sensitive to the polarization properties of the underlying tissue. Tissue phantom results are presented which demonstrate that a polarizing target can be detected at a depth of 17 mean free paths within a scattering medium. The results have been validated using a polarization sensitive Monte Carlo simulation.
