Abstract
Polarimetry has become an indispensable analysis tool, in remote sensing as well as in radar metrology. In the same way, it is possible to characterize immersed targets illuminated by a laser beam, by using signal polarization. Here our purpose is to discriminate them in relation with their depolarizing and diffusing properties. Using the Stokes-Mueller formalism and Gil- Bernabeu depolarization criterion, we have synthesized two different types of images from which we build analysis methods. In this paper, we present different results for some characteristic samples.
