Evaluation of a linear birefringence measurement method with increased sensitivity.

Abstract

The evaluation of a measurement method of linear birefringence with increased sensitivity is presented. The examined method is based on a substantial change of the geometrical phase caused by a small change of an examined medium's birefringence. The measuring setup consists of a linear polarizer, Wollaston compensator, and circular analyzer. The measurement… (More)
