Abstract

To measure the complete optical parameters of linear birefringence materials, a new heterodyne polariscope with sequential measurement method is proposed. In this study, a multiple-order crystalline quartz quarter-waveplate used as a test sample is measured by two sequential setups. The proposed method has average absolute errors of 0.2167° and 0.15 % with respect to the principal axis angle and the phase retardation. The order, thickness and refractive indices also have a good agreement with the known sample data. Compared to its conventional counterparts, the proposed heterodyne polariscope has strong point uniquely on the complete optical parameter measurements.
