Abstract/Description:
The polarimetric properties of random electromagnetic beams provide new means for characterizing random media. A novel interferometric technique is introduced for controlling the polarimetric, spectral, and coherence characteristics of random electromagnetic beams. Several new techniques are presented for measuring the state of polarization and the polarization transfer through scattering media. The polarimetric signatures of different particulate systems are related to their structural properties and to the size distribution, shape, orientation, birefringent or dichroic properties of the particles. Various scattering regimes and different geometries are discussed for applications relevant to the bio-medical field, material science, and remote sensing.
