Abstract

We present the experimental results for the two-dimensional backscattering Mueller matrix of a scattering medium containing polystyrene microspheres and silk fibers and simulate the same Mueller matrix using a polarization-sensitive Monte Carlo program with both layered and homogeneous sphere-cylinder scattering models. We discuss the characteristic features in each Mueller matrix element and their relations with the parameters of the spherical and cylindrical scatterers in the medium. Both experiments and simulations suggest that the Mueller matrix elements can be used to characterize the structural and optical properties of anisotropic scattering media.
