Abstract

The impetus for this paper was to assist investigators not familiar with radiometry theory. Many times they apply a scalar theory to the scattering of polarized light from nondepolarizing targets. Also some investigators erroneously apply a combined scalar–vector theory since the correct vector–matrix approach has not been developed in the literature. The classical theory used by many investigators is modified in vector–matrix form in this paper. The vector–matrix theory is applied to the various geometries. These results and examples are presented in tabular form.
