Abstract

We propose a new decomposition for depolarizing Mueller matrices. This decomposition, which consists of a product of four basic optical devices (two diattenuators, a retarder, and a depolarizer) is derived from a previous one known as “symmetric decomposition” [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 26, 1109 (2009) [CrossRef]] and makes it easier to interpret polarization properties of Mueller matrices and improves estimation of the extracted parameters. Its application is illustrated by several theoretical and experimental examples.
