Abstract

The concepts of diattenuation and retardance are generalized on the basis of polar decomposition to include inhomogeneous polarization element. Explicit expressions of these concepts are derived in terms of Jones matrices elements. These expressions are used to perform data reduction in Jones matrices. Results of polarization elements classification by their unitary invariants, eigenvalues, and inhomogeneity are also discussed.
