Optical polarization studies of Indian Medicinal plant Konda Gogu

Author : P.V.Kanaka.Rao 1

Date of Publication :24th October 2017

Abstract: Polarimetric imaging system operating in the reflection mode is designed to understand the characteristic polarization effects taking place in wood sample prepared from the bark of Cochlospermum religiosum, an Indian medicinal plant known as Konda Gogu in the telugu. The intensity images recorded by this polarimeter are processed using polar decomposition technique to obtain polarimetric parameters. The degrees of polarization images and the corresponding mean intensity values are obtained using Image processing algorithms that were developed in MatLab platform
