Abstract

We describe the concept of stochastic scattering polarimetry. This method allows determination of the anisotropic polarizability of a scattering object using a statistical analysis of the polarimetrically measured intensity distributions in the wave zone (far field). We show that this anisotropic polarizability may be determined even in situations where the state of polarization of the incident field is not known. The efficiency of the recovering procedure is demonstrated by several examples of light scattering in both far- and near-field geometries.
