polarization curve

polarization curve

A curve showing the relationship between the angle of reflection of light from a surface and the degree of polarization of the reflected light. It depends on the surface characteristics (texture, composition). It is used to deduce the albedo of the surfaces of asteroids so that their diameters may be calculated.
