Mueller matrix differential decomposition is a novel method for retrieving the polarimetric properties of general depolarizing anisotropic media [N. Ortega-Quijano and J. L. Arce-Diego, Opt. Lett. 36, 1942 (2011), R. Ossikovski, Opt. Lett. 36, 2330 (2011)]. The method has been verified for Mueller matrices available in the literature. We experimentally validate the decomposition for five different experimental setups with different commutation properties and controlled optical parameters, comparing the differential decomposition with the forward and reverse polar decompositions. The results enable to verify the method and to highlight its advantages for certain experimental applications of high interest.
