Scattering and Birefringence in the Phase Retardation of Circularly Polarized Light

Source Role of scattering and birefringence in phase retardation revealed by locus of Stokes vector on Poincar√© sphere Abstract Significance: Biological tissues are typically characterized by high anisotropic scattering and may also exhibit linear form birefringence. Both scattering and birefringence bias the phase shift between transverse electric field components of polarized light. These...
