Abstract

We have developed a cholesteric liquid crystal (CLC) mirror-based innovative model for detection and visualization of images in turbid media. Due to its unique optical-polarization properties, the CLC mirror is suggested as the basic element of the imaging Stokes polarimeter. The particular design of the proposed polarimeter, coupled with its distinguished operational simplicity, reliability, and real-time operational facilities, promises to fabricate a new generation of the imaging Stokes polarimeter, which can find applications in areas such as diagnostics, biology, astronomy, and remote sensing.
