Abstract
Measurements of a reduced Mueller matrix in backscattering from diffusive, dielectric targets are reported as a function of the angle of incidence. It was found that the off-diagonal elements depend greatly on the angle of incidence, increasing to a maximum near grazing incidence. A theoretical model that accounts for the non-trivial behavior in the off-diagonal elements of the Mueller matrix is presented. We comment on the applicability of this model to the determination of the shape of the targets.
