Jones矢量Stokes参量Mueller矩阵散射Jones Vector Stokes Parameters Mueller Matrix Scattering



The formulae of a single particle’s scattering based on Jones vectors are derived. Then, the scat-tering Jones vectors of the single particle for the typical polarization states can be calculated. Fur-ther, the Stokes parameters can be obtained according to the scattering Jones vectors. The proper linear combination of the typical scattering Stokes parameters will provide the elements of Mueller matrix. The simulations for the single particle show that the subgraphs of the 2D Mueller matrix are symmetrical about the diagonal. The values for m41, m42, m43, m14, m24, m34 are all zeros. Only five subgraphs for the nonzero elements are independent and the others can be gained by rotation.
