A new principle for recording information about the structure of optically inhomogeneous layers is proposed. Principles of variations in the state of polarization of illuminating laser radiation using a reference wave are used. The digital holographic algorithm for obtaining three-dimensional Muller-matrix images of phase-inhomogeneous layers is presented. The azimuthally invariant parameters that characterize the layered anisotropy of biological layers are found.
