Paper Abstract

The interrelation between the state of polarization of local zones of object field and the value of inclination angle of skin epidermis plates has been found in the single scattering approximation. The technique of polarization reconstruction of coordinate distribution of inclination angles of surface micro-irregularities of skin epidermis has been suggested. Statistics of the 1st-4th orders of optical-geometric properties of rough surface of physiologically normal and pathologically changed skin has been analyzed. It was shown that microrelief of the sound skin surface has fractal angular structure. Pathological changes cause random distribution of inclination angles of micro-irregularities of the skin surface.
