Abstract

A general solution of the tomographic problem for weakly refracting inhomogeneous birefringent media is presented. The solution requires an unusual tomographic experiment in which the considered medium is probed with three series of standard tomographic sets of light rays, when the light is polarized. Data for the tomographic reconstruction are produced by recording the interferometric data and measuring birefringent parameters in the standard way.
