Paper Abstract

A three-by-three polarization ray tracing matrix method for polarization ray tracing in optical systems is presented for calculating the polarization transformations associated with ray paths through optical systems. The method is a three dimensional generalization of a Jones matrix. Diattenuation of the optical system is calculated via singular value decomposition.
