A vector-based analysis is presented for polarization-sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) that yields diattenuation, birefringence, and relative optic axis orientation. Experimental confirmation is demonstrated by comparing the calculated diattenuation of chicken tendon and muscle to independent measurement. The diattenuation of the retinal nerve fiber layer of the superior region of a human retina is also calculated.
