Abstract

A digital holographic Mueller matrix imaging method is proposed. A Mueller matrix is obtained from Stokes vectors that are calculated from the complex amplitude of the two orthogonal polarized lights. The complex amplitude is obtained by digital holography. In the proposed method, three-dimensional Mueller matrix imaging is achieved by 12 recordings. Optical experimental results confirm the feasibility of the proposed method by measuring the Mueller matrices of four linear polarizers, a quarter-wave plate, and two linear polarizers placed at different positions.
