Paper Abstract

The polarization state of the infrared beam reflected from a metallic cube-corner retroreflector (CCR) is analyzed using the Mueller matrix formalism. In a given paper polarization changes of an electromagnetic beam reflected from the CCR are studied in a rather wide range of parameters: complex reflection coefficients of metallic surfaces, beam wavelength, initial polarization state and incidence angle. It is shown that for definite parameters combination polarization changes are small, what is very important for plasma polarimetry on thermonuclear devices.
