Measurement of birefringence using polarization phase-shifting Mach-Zehnder interferometer
Published in SPIE
Volume: 54
Issue: 11
An interferometric method for quantitative evaluation of the magnitude and direction of birefringence of an arbitrarily oriented birefringent sample is developed and presented. The analysis shows that full-field analysis of a spatially varying birefringence is possible by suitably combining several interferogram frames obtained by varying the polarization parameters involved. The preliminary experimental result for a uniformly birefringent sample with a known direction of birefringence is presented. © 2015 Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
