Abstract

The spatially resolved Mueller matrix of a mono-static optical system with the corner-cube retro-reflector operating in the presence of clear-air atmospheric turbulence is measured for the first time, to the best of our knowledge. The changes in the polarization properties of the beam are caused by the combination of deterministic polarimetric modulation by the retro-reflector and random scalar modulation of the return beam by atmospheric turbulence. In particular, the spatial structure of the Mueller matrix within the enhanced backscatter area is revealed.
