Paper Abstract

There are lots of bubbles of different diameters in the sea. Our interest is the bubbles which are of micron order diameters, because the life time for there bubbles are longest even to several hours. To detect the optical characters of such small bubbles can be uesd to detecting the targets in the sea. The Mueller matrix can be used to describe the scattering process of the laser transmitting in the medium which contains all the polarization information in an elastic scattering process. A system is developed for measuring the Stokes vector of the micro-bubbles in lab. The Stokes vector can be calculated by I||, I, I+ and IL that separately correspond to the parallel intensity, perpendicular intensity, positive 45° intensity and right circle intensity of scattering light. The Mueller matrix of the micro-bubbles has been calculated by the Stokes vector measured. The scattering of the bubbles introduced the circle polarization into the light beam transmitted.
