In this paper we report using a 6-channel polarization detector to measure optical properties of aerosols and clouds. The polarization lidar system is designed to measure Stokes vectors and Mueller matrices from back-scatterings of air, aerosols and clouds by using several polarizers of setting at different angles, and a retarder to measure circular polarization. The 4 components Stokes vectors of the scattering media are constructed and a case of tropopause cirrus cloud and stratospheric aerosols are measured with the Mueller matrix derived.
