Improving the Accuracy of Retardance Measurements by a Compensation Technique Using HE-NE and ND:YAG CW Lasers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Spectrophotometric, attenuation and compensation techniques were used for measurements of retardance in crystal quartz waveplates. The repeatability of compensation measurements is better than λ/2,000 for two wavelengths, 0.6328 and 1.0641 μm. This has been achieved by excluding multireflection images, precise orientation of all polarization components, fine adjustment and uniform irradiation of the optical elements of this dual wavelength, double channel measurement setup.
