Experimental results on light depolarization due to multimode scattering are reported. By means of polarization tomography, we characterize the depolarizing power and the polarization entropy of a broad class of optically scattering media and confirm the recently predicted universal behavior of these two quantities [Phys. Rev. Lett.94, 090406 (2005)].
