Laser polarimetry utilizes the orientation of the electric-field vector of light for applications including automated target recognition (ATR) according to shape, texture, and permittivity. Laser polarization signatures are high-dimensional datasets to which methods of machine-learning are applied in polarization-components techniques (PCT) algorithms developed at AOT.
AOT is currently engaged in theoretical and experimental R&D in laser polarimetry for several applications. See the FAQ and the publications below or contact us for more information.
