In this paper we present experimental results demonstrating processing techniques developed in our laboratory that can be utilized to decode or extract useful information from two-dimensional Mueller matrices of turbid media. Through the use of these methods, involving the partial least squares technique, it is shown how scattering coefficient contributions as a function of particle size can be estimated for a given sample. Furthermore, we demonstrate how a spatial selection algorithm known as "chain select" can be used to help facilitate the interpretation of the measured Mueller matrix images. The samples utilized in this investigation were comprised of polystyrene spheres with diameters ranging from 200 nm to 2000 nm and analyzed with 514 nm light. At this wavelength, both Rayleigh and Mie-types of scattering are observed.
