In this paper we analyze the requirements that are imposed upon optical measuring devices in studying the polarization structure of optical radiation scattered by different objects with fluctuating parameters. We also discuss the ways to overcome certain difficulties that emerge in the studies through the use in the sounding channel of a polarimeter of an electrically controlled phase plate fabricated from a LiNbO3 crystal. This provides for fully automated measurement and calibration procedures and improves the accuracy of measuring Muller's matrices.
