Abstract
The Stokes/Mueller approach provides complete characterization of sample induced polarization changes to both specular and scattered light that is reflected or transmitted from optical components. Ellipsometry is a subset of this more complete approach to polarization analysis. In this paper, Mueller matrices of several samples are found and compared to the matrix of ideal elements. Samples include optical mirrors that scatter both topographically and non-topographically, waveplates, and optical windows.
