Measuring the Mueller Matrix by a Multimodulator Scattering Instrument
An instrument is being constructed to measure the Mueller matrix for a scattering sample. The instrument is a modified version of that described by Fry, et al. A summary of the theory is given with pertinent extensions. A method for this precise calibration of photoelastic modulators is described.
