Paper Abstract

The full polarization elements parameter optimization is conducted to minimize the determination error of Mueller matrix elements and to accelerate the measurement. The optimal retarders rotating frequency ratio is found. Expressions for the Mueller matrix elements is given in terms of components of the signal Fourier decomposition for the dynamic Muller-polarimeter (which scheme was proposed by R. Azzam in 1978) with arbitrary parameters. Muller- polarimeter with optimal parameters is shown to have the measurement error in 1.7 times less than Mueller-polarimeter with parameter chosen in traditional manner. The correspondent computer simulation is conducted to confirm theoretical study.
