The Q(M) depolarization scalar metric and a graphical polarimetric analysis are applied to several reported Mueller matrices. A brief review of the main polarimetric concepts and the depolarizations scalar metrics is presented. It is shown the depolarization scalar metric Q(M) provides consistent results with the reported scalar metrics and offers more information about the internal nature of the Mueller matrix.
