Orientation effect on the reciprocity relation for stokes vectors of scattered light
The validity of the Reciprocity relation forStokes vectors of scattered light, was tested experimentally for a set of parallel nylon fibers, with the fiber axes oriented at different angles in the vertical plane; corresponding to unpolarized, circularly polarized and linearly-horizontally, vertically and 45°, polarized incident beams. It is found that the Reciprocity relation is valid for all orientations, and for differen t types of incident beams, and is quite general. Interesting observations have been made regarding the polarization behaviour of the set of parallel nylon fibers, used as the scattering medium.
