Polarization effects of seawater and underwater targets

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

In underwater optical imaging using pulsed laser radiation the vector nature of the electromagnetic wave can be used to produce polarization contrast. We have analyzed different polarimetric transformations of light pulses through seawater on immersed targets and defined optimum conditions for using polarization parameters.
