Abstract
The polarization and depolarization properties of two types of targets have been derived from the experimental determination of their Mueller matrix image. Each polarization signature is deduced from the polar decomposition of the Mueller matrix into images of retardance, diattenuation, polarizance, and depolarization. Different correlations between the polarization parameters and synthesized angle of incidence and angle of scatter images have been developed to determine an approximation of the angle of incidence from the polarization signatures.
