Abstract
Active polarimetric imaging systems are invaluable tools for biomedical or remote sensing applications but they have higher cost and complexity than standard imagers. An important issue is thus to determine under which condition they yield better performance, and what is their optimal number of measurements. Recent advances have made it possible to give quantitative answers to these questions, and we will illustrate these results on some examples.
