Abstract

An electro-optic device is used that permits the measurement of polarized absorption spectra (linear dichroism). The change of the polarization state of a light beam brought about by passage through the optic elements of a dichrograph are described mathematically by a transformation of the Stokes vector. The polarization or absorption properties of the optical elements are described by the Mueller matrices. The dichroic properties of sheep retina and cornea are studied <i>in vitro</i>.
