Paper Abstract

Analyzing the state of polarization of these reflected beams by using Stokes parameters is used to characterize the natural properties of the surface. We show the angle-resolved Stokes parameters of several objects with rough surface, and derive depolarized components caused by scattering. The preliminary results offer our further investigation of the relation between the optical performance and the structure of the rough surface.
