The light-scattering Mueller matrix is experimentally determined for a 0.26-μm-radius quartz fiber mounted on an aluminum surface at five different incident angles. The results are compared with those for the experimental scattering elements of the lone fiber and the lone surface and with theoretical results derived from a simple fiber–surface model. The experimental matrix elements of the fiber–surface system do not resemble the matrix elements from any of these other systems.
