Abstract
A new azimuthally stable polarimetric method for processing of microscopic images of optically anisotropic structures of different biological layers histological sections is proposed. A new model of phase anisotropy definition of biological tissues by using superposition of Mueller matrices of linear birefringence and optical activity is proposed. The matrix element M44 has been chosen as the main information parameter, which value is independent of rotation angle of both sample and probing beam polarization plane.
