Extracting a system’s physical features from polarimetric experiments constitutes a challenging task, especially in the presence of multiple scattering. This can be attributed to the difficulty in interpreting the polarimetric measurements. In this study, we demonstrate that polarimetric images recorded in the backscattering geometry can be interpreted by analyzing the spatial variations of the backscattered light’s Stokes vectors and using symmetry/geometry arguments. To illustrate the applicability of our method, we examine experimental and simulation data collected by probing colloidal suspensions. We present an analytical model based on the coherency matrix and the geometric phase to describe the polarimetric behavior of the probed samples.
