Polarization-gated imaging techniques based on time-resolved Stokes vectors for filament tissues
We report the discovery of using various time-resolved Stokes vector components for more efficient imaging of filament tissues. In particular, the Stokes vector components S2 and S3 were found more useful, compared with the other two components. The time-resolved Stokes vectors of signals transmitting chicken breast tissue, mouse cardiac muscle tissue, and polystyrene micro-sphere solution are compared. A target of chicken bone in chicken breast tissue is used for demonstrating the effectiveness of various Stokes vector components for imaging purpose. Also, Monte Carlo simulations were conducted for comparison.
