Paper Abstract

Characterization of potentially useful polarization signatures is discussed. We experimentally evaluate a liquid crystal retarder switch used for beamsteering as a function of angle and applied voltage, and compare to a CCR at 633 nm. Distinguishable results between the various measured Mueller matrix elements, angle of incidence, applied voltage and samples tested are shown, which indicates this method may be useful in discriminating between various return signals and background clutter.
