Abstract

In this Letter we present the equations to calculate the six independent polarization effects of an arbitrary normalized Mueller–Jones matrix corresponding to homogenous media. A comparison between this method and other inversion procedures is discussed, and the application of the analytic inversion to experimental Mueller matrices is illustrated.
