Backscattering phase matrices (BPM) have been measured by a polarization lidar with controllable polarization of output laser radiation for measuring all the Stokes parameters at l = 532 nm. The degree of orientation and the preferred orientation of particles are determined. To this end, the properties of BPM for the model of axisymmetric prolate particle (APP) ensemble are used. It has been suggested that scattering anisotropy of an aerosol layer, whose BPM is not described by the APP model, is caused by birefringence.
