Abstract

We derive the relationships between the elementary polarization properties describing a homogeneous medium within the framework of the differential Jones and Mueller formalisms from transmission polarimetry, and the permittivity tensor of the medium, assumed to be weakly anisotropic. The expressions are illustrated on selected examples and allowed to physically interpret experimental polarimetry data.
