Motivation

Motivation

Why are we interested?

MM contains information about all the polarization properties of the sample and

thus has been very useful in the following areas of (but not limiting to) science

and technology.

Material characterization,

Measuring the thickness and refractive indices of thin lms (ellipsometry),

Tissue characterization & dierentiation, monitoring of Glucose levels in

blood, etc.,

Remote sensing of the earth and astronomical bodies,

Applications in Metrology, Astronomy, Ophthalmology, Radar polarimetry

etc.

2

Stokes Mueller calculus is applicable to randomly, fully or partially polarized

light.

MM Measurement Methods

MM Measurement Methods

Some commonly used approaches...

Several MM measurement methods have been proposed so far. Some of the most

adopted among them are:

1

Modulation-based methods:

Uses electro-optic, magneto-optic or photoelastic modulators to rapidly

change polarization states and a lock-in based detection.

Advantages: Single measurement is sucient to determine complete

MM with very high precession and accuracy.

Major Drawback: Spectral and imaging measurements are not

possible.

2

Direct Measurements, using dual rotating polarizers and retarders.

Advantages: Suits well for imaging and/or spectral measurements.

Major Drawbacks: Measurements are not very accurate and are

prone to huge errors.

Harsh Purwar (DPS, IISER-K) Quantitative MM Polarimetry April 26, 2012 6 / 41

Our MM Measurement Strategy

Our Measurement Strategy

Heres what we did...!

Dual rotating retarder approach:

Consists of two rotating quarter wave plates and two xed linear polarizers to generate sixteen

elliptically polarized states.

Polarization State Generator (W) comprises of a xed linear polarizer (P

1

) followed by a

rotatable quarter wave plate (Q

1

). It, in general can be used to generate any polarization state.

using Polar Decomposition scheme to get its basic polarization properties. Choice of orientation

angles of retarders (QWPs) is:

very crucial to get a stable and physically realizable MM.

The Singular Value Decomposition of an mn real or complex matrix S is a factorization of the

form,

S = UDV

The angles of the polarizers and QWPs should be chosen so that

the corresponding Stokes vectors are distributed evenly inside the

Poincare sphere.

This is achieved by making sure that the singular values obtained

after SVD of the PSG and PSA matrices are non-zero. We dene

Eigenvalue Calibration Method

Need for Calibration

How does it help?

The polarizers and QWPs do not behave ideally (i.e. not as a perfect diattenuator

and as a perfect /2 retarder) over the entire spectral range. And hence the PSG

and PSA matrices constructed earlier will change with wavelength.

Eigenvalue Calibration,

provides exact PSG (W) and PSA (A) matrices over the entire spectral

range.

hence automatically corrects for the non-ideal behaviour of the involved

optical elements.

requires at least two extra measurements with samples whose form of the

MM is known.

leading to three basic polarization properties diattenuation (D), retardance (R)

and depolarization ().

Depolarization (): If an incident state is 100% polarized and the exiting state

has a degree of polarization less than unity, then the system is said to be

depolarizing.

Retardance (R) is the phase dierence between the two orthogonal polarizations

of light for both linear and circular polarizations.

Diattenuation (D) is the dierential attenuation of orthogonal polarizations for

both linear and circular polarization states.

Fluorescence MM Polarimetry

Challenges & Prospects

1

Signicant change in tissue uorescence from normal to malignant stage.

2

Collagen and NADH identied as biomarkers for cancer.

3

Tissue uorescence spectra convolution of spectra of various uorophores.

4

Diagnostic parameters: Spectra, Yield & Decay Kinetics.

5

Only spectral signature can not be used to distinguish between the normal and cancerous

tissues for the following few reasons.

Spectral signatures of these biomolecules vary from patient to patient and also

depend on the region we are probing.

Are hugely inuenced by the absorption of light from absorbers like blood. Hence

not suited for in-vitro examination.

Also the emission and absorption bands of NADH and Collagen overlap to an extent

that it is not practically possible to study them separately.

Fluorescence MM on the other hand can bring out the structural dierences by targeting

specic molecules. The brous structure of collagen gives large diattenuation as opposed

to NADH, which is isotropic.

Hence this can be used as a tool for Cancer Diagnosis.
