Paper Abstract

To explore the polarization-dependent optical properties of skeletal muscle tissues, we calibrated the extinction coefficients of the polarization components parallel with and perpendicular to chicken breast tissue filaments and the cross-polarized intensity coupling coefficients between the two polarization components, based on the measured quasi- coherent photons. The calibrated values of these coefficients were quite consistent with previously reported. The extinction coefficient in the polarization along tissue filaments was significantly higher than that of the other polarization. Also, the cross-polarized coupling coefficient of the coupling from the polarization of tissue filaments into the other was stronger than that of inverse coupling.
