Abstract

Scenes from a Mueller matrix movie of a brass cone are shown. From the Mueller matrix image, a variety of polarization measures are calculated and displayed. These polarization images reveal considerable details about the geometry of the cone despite the fact that the images are taken from a single vantage point, i. e. they are "flat images". As the cone rotates, the orientation of the diattenuation and retardance follow the shape of the cone, providing a clear indication of its shape.
