Recent approaches to the analysis of biological samples with three-dimensional linear birefringence orientation require numerical methods to estimate the best fit parameters from experimental measures. We present a novel analytical method for characterizing the intrinsic retardance and the three-dimensional optic axis orientation of uniform and uniaxial turbid media. It is based on a model that exploits the recently proposed differential generalized Jones calculus, remarkably suppressing the need for numerical procedures. The method is applied to the analysis of samples modeled with polarized sensitive Monte Carlo. The results corroborate its capacity to successfully characterize 3D linear birefringence in a straightforward way.
