Ludmilla Kolokolova is a Senior Research Scientist at the University of Maryland, focusing on polarimetric remote sensing of comets, asteroids and cosmic dust and polarimetric techniques in astrobiology. James Hough is a Research Professor at the University of Hertfordshire. He led the astronomy research programme for over thirty years with polarimetry as his main research interest. He has been awarded the Herschel Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society (2010). Anny-Chantal Levasseur-Regourd is a Professor at the Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris, where her research activities focus on the physics of small bodies in the Solar System. She has been Principal Investigator for light scattering experiments on rockets, satellites and space probes, and an Officer of the French Legion d'Honneur since 2013.


Summarising the striking advances of the last two decades, this is a reliable introduction to state-of-the-art astronomical and planetary polarimetry. The perfect resource for astronomers and researchers working in astrophysics, earth sciences, and remote sensing keen to learn more about this valuable diagnostic tool or broaden their existing understanding.
