Polarization is often considered secondary aspect of the optical field, and in many instances is ignored, treating problems as scalar instead of vector. However, the polarized nature of the light carries information about the processes that the light has undergone, and can be a valuable tool in many aspects of remote sensing.? Polarization has been demonstrated to aid in target identification,?,? help image through turbid media,?,? and reduce clutter and increase contrast? in a variety of defense, surveillance, industrial, and medical applications.
