Measurement of polarized light interactions via the Mueller matrix. Academic Article uri icon


  • A new instrument for rapid and accurate measurement of the Mueller matrix is described. Distinct measurements of all sixteen elements are made simultaneously and with an absolute accuracy of 1-5%. The instrument employs electrooptic modulators. Results are presented for several simple optical devices and systems.
