Abstract

The sixteen elements of the Mueller matrix are associated with sixteen degrees of freedom, seven nonpolarizing, and nine depolarizing degrees of freedom. Combinations of polarization elements are associated with all the degrees of freedom demonstrating that physically realizable polarization elements span all sixteen degrees. Two alternative polarization basis states are introduced.
