Abstract

A new criterion for target detection and identification is proposed to realize metal/dielectric identification and recognition based on Mueller matrix analysis. By using randomly rough surfaces as targets, numerical calculations are used to prove the robustness and accuracy of the criterion. Moreover, to the best of our knowledge, this is the first time to successfully explain the criterion by theoretical analysis. We believe the work provides an important reference for polarization imaging in laser radar and remote sensing, and so on.
