Abstract

We propose and experimentally demonstrate a technique, based on polarization modulation, for imaging of the polarization discriminating object hidden behind a scattering medium. This is realized by making use of the relation between the complex correlation function of the randomly scattered orthogonal polarization components in the far field and polarized source structure at the scattering plane. Full use of a polarimetric parameter at the scattering plane is realized in the object plane reconstruction behind the scattering medium using a backpropagation approach. To demonstrate application of the technique, imaging of two different objects lying behind the scattering media is presented.
