14 October 2003 A Mueller polarimetric imaging system for biomedical applications
Author Affiliations +
We present a new polarimetric imaging system based on liquid crystal modulators, a spectrally filtered white light source and a CCD camera. The whole Mueller matrix image of the sample is measured in around 5 seconds in transmission mode. The instrument design, together with an original and easy-to-operate calibration procedure provides a high accuracy (better than 1.5% for the normalized Mueller matrix) over a wide spectral range. The data can be processed with different algorithms. Results on hepatic biopsies with different grades of fibrosis are presented.
