Abstract

We report on the experimental realization of a family of depolarizing Mueller matrices that are Stokes nondiagonalizable. We likewise demonstrate a unique characteristic property of Stokes nondiagonalizable matrices consisting in the preservation of the degree of polarization of a single totally polarized input and illustrate it on our experimental example.
