Paper Abstract

This paper reviews a simple (economical) technique for measuring retro-scatter. Noise floors below 10-5 sr-1 have been achieved. The technique relies on a unique Stokes/Mueller method of characterizing sample polarization characteristics. Data is presented for several samples. This paper relies on material presented in the preceding two papers of this document.
