Optimal estimation in polarimetric imaging in the presence of correlated noise fluctuations

Abstract : We quantitatively analyze how a polarization-sensitive imager can overcome the precision of a standard intensity camera when estimating a parameter on a polarized source over an intense background. We show that the gain is maximized when the two polarimetric channels are perturbed with significantly correlated noise fluctuations. An optimal estimator is derived and compared to standard intensity and polarimetric estimators.
