Abstract

A depolarization scalar metric for Mueller matrices, named Q ( M ) , is derived from the degree of polarization. Q ( M ) has been recently reported, and it has been deduced from the nine bilinear constraints between the sixteen elements of the Mueller–Jones matrix. We discuss the relations between Q ( M ) and the depolarization index.
