Abstract
The properties of a 3 × 3 polarization ray tracing matrix formalism are presented and the role of this method in optical design. Properties of diattenuator matrices are derived and methods for analyzing diattenuation of arbitrary homogeneous and inhomogeneous matrices are presented. The 3 × 3 matrix formalism is used to analyze polarization properties of an example corner cube.
