Polarisation effects in lidar signals: determination, correction, and uncertainty calculation

Published online: 13 April 2018
An analytical framework, based on the Müller-Stokes formalism, is presented, which enables us to determine the impact of polarisation effects of the lidar optics on the lidar signals and on the measured atmospheric linear depolarisation. Furthermore, the equations enable us to investigate the accuracy of the gain ratio calibration of depolarisation channels with different calibration setups, to correct some of the polarisation effects, and to perform uncertainty analyses.
