|Abstract:||Various different parameters have been introduced to describe the degree of polarization of a partially polarized electromagnetic field in three dimensions. Of these, parameters based on the eigenvalues of the coherency matrix are invariant under a unitary transformation. Here, explicit expressions are presented for the eigenvalues, thus providing a geometrical interpretation of the behavior. These expressions are applied to the Huynen decomposition and allow interrelations between different parameters to be developed. © 2011 Optical Society of America.|
