We develop a modulus Mueller matrix microscope by adding polarization state generator and analyzer (PSG and PSA) to a commercial transmission optical microscope. The microscope is calibrated to minimize errors of the Mueller matrix elements to 0.01. Preliminary experimental results on biological tissues and different materials and Monte Carlo simulations show that the microscope can provide quantitative information on the characteristic microstructural features of complex samples, which make it a potentially powerful tool in clinical diagnosis and material studies.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
