Abstract
A general matrix method for description of light reflection and transmission in systems containing of thin and thick anisotropic layers is proposed. The method is based on matrix summation of partial waves. The non-coherent summation of intensities in a thick layer is characterized using the coherence vector formalism. The measured quantities (magneto-optical rotation and ellipicity), or Mueller matrix components are obtained from 4×4 matrix describing transformation between coherence vectors, hereafter the coherence transforming matrix. In the case of polar geometry, the base consists of right and left-handed circular polarizations and the matrices have diagonal form.
