    Comparison of similar Mueller and Jones matrix method in catheter based polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography

    Catheter based polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) can provide composition information of coronary atherosclerotic plaque beyond the intensity based OCT, but it encounters a notable challenge that is how to reduce polarization properties variations owing to a rapidly rotating optical fiber in the catheter. Similar Jones matrix (SJM) and similar Mueller matrix (SMM) based polarization determination methods can provide a stable phase retardation imaging in a catheter based PS-OCT. In this paper, we systematically contrast SJM and SMM methods. Firstly, we theoretically illustrate the discrepancy between the eigenvalue decomposition in SJM and the polar decomposition in SMM. We find ...
