Matrix Description Of Radiometric Quantities
The impetus for this paper was to assist investigators not familiar with radiometry theory. Many times they apply a scalar theory to the scattering of polarized light from nondepolarizing targets. Also some investigators erroneously apply a combined scalar-vector theory since the correct vector-matrix approach has not been developed in the literature. The classical theory used by many investigators is modified in vector-matrix form in this paper. The vector-matrix theory is applied to the various geometries. These results and examples are presented in tabular form. Key words: Polarization, radiometry, Mueller calculus. © 1991 Optical Society of America.
