Paper Abstract

This research proposes a new imaging technique for near real time multispectral acquisition of the so called "Degree Of Polarization" (DOP) in polarimetry for future clinical investigation. The aim of exploiting the DOP as the contrast element is to demonstrate that the elliptical DOP provides more information characterizing complex medium than the more traditional linear and circular ones. The system considers an incoherent input white light beam and opportunely calibrated nematic crystals, so no mechanical tools are necessary. The biomedical application of this method suggests a simple, direct, fast and also easily exploitable future employment, as a desirable mean for clinical investigation. Moreover new elements to improve the model of light scattering will be acquired.
