Single pixel polarimetric imaging through scattering media

Opt Lett. 2020 Oct 15;45(20):5740-5743. doi: 10.1364/OL.399554.


Polarimetric imaging can provide valuable information about biological samples in a wide range of applications. Detrimental tissue scattering and depolarization however currently hamper in vivo polarization imaging. In this work, single pixel imaging is investigated as a means of reconstructing polarimetric images through scattering media. A theoretical imaging model is presented, and the recovery of the spatially resolved Mueller matrix of a test object behind a scattering phantom is demonstrated experimentally.
