Abstract

By solving a linear stochastic equation, we demonstrate how probability density functions of scattered intensities and order statistics can be used for reconstructing the statistical properties of fluctuating anisotropic polarizabilities. Depending on the statistical relationship between the elements of the polarizability tensor, we show how task optimized measurements can be conducted to reduce the number of necessary measurements. This approach is directly applicable to polarimetric measurements with limited control over the experimental conditions.
