Testing of linear polarizer using photorefractive effect
Abstract:A new method is developed to test linear polarizers using two-wave mixing in photorefractive Bi12TiO20 (Bismuth Titanium Oxide, BTO). The extinction ratios obtained from this method was comparable with the literature values and the method is also useful for qualitative analysis of linear polarizers. Detailed theoretical and experimental analysis is given in the paper.
