Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Areappraisal of the 1929 analysis of luminescence by Soleillet reveals the form of the Mueller matrix for fluorescence scattering whose parameters are directly defined in terms of the now-familiar fluorescence anisotropy parameter. If the scattering analyte is optically active, it is further shown how fluorescence detected circular dichroism and circularly polarized luminescence can be recovered, simultaneously and free of artifacts.
