Paper Abstract

An isotropic medium can consist of a system of spherical particles as well as anisotropic particles with perfectly random orientation. Even though the scattering particle is spherical, the anisotropic geometry of the incident and scattering direction can cause polarization in the scattering beam. For a system of randomly oriented anisotropic particles, both polarization and depolarization exist. This work reports the polarization and depolarization of dipole scattering for such an overall isotropic system whose anisotropic particles are ellipsoids by using both the Jones matrix and Mueller matrix formulations.
