Abstract:

The modification of the Senarmont compensator is presented. It uses standard simple and reverse Senarmont setups, however, the phase retardances of unknown medium as well as the element used as a quarterwave plate in classical setups could be measured. It leads to conclusion that retardations of two unknown elements could be obtained and no calibrated quarter wave plate is needed.

Keywords: Birefringence; compensator; optical anisotropy; phase retardance measurement
