Abstract

We report on the study of light polarization behavior in random anisotropy scattering media. It is shown that, in the case of low scattering events, the degree of polarization (DOP) demonstrates oscillatory behavior due to the coherent character of light scattering. A strong increase in the DOP is demonstrated by using electro-optic fine tuning of the refractive index modulation depth of the scattering media.
