In science:

This ℓF estimate is only three times larger than the OH (1720 MHz) maser gain length estimated by Lockett et al. (1999) of ∼ 2 × 1017 cm, implying that Faraday depolarization may contribute to the low linear polarization intensities observed by Claussen et al (1997).

Higher Order Statistsics of Stokes Parameters in a Random Birefringent Medium
It appears from these three examples, in addition to the somewhat evident fact that higher order statistics are necessary when studying non Gaussian fields, that in order to call a state of polarization totally depolarized, it is not sufficient to have P = 0.
Higher Order Statistsics of Stokes Parameters in a Random Birefringent Medium
It is possible to synthesize the results of our model, with the measure of degree of polarization proposed in , by defining a totally depolarized state of polarization as one for which P l = 0 for all l ≥ 1.
Higher Order Statistsics of Stokes Parameters in a Random Birefringent Medium
If we have P l = 0 only for 1 ≤ l ≤ L, then we can say that the state of polarization is depolarized to the order L.
Higher Order Statistsics of Stokes Parameters in a Random Birefringent Medium
Classical models only consider depolarization to the order 1.
