The field transmitted through disordered media is essentially a randomly sampled version of the incident field. Properties of the initial field can be recovered if this sampling function or transmission matrix is known. Here we demonstrate how the transmission matrix of a disordered material can be used to simultaneously measure the spectral and polarimetric properties of an optical field.
