Paper Abstract

The polarization properties of a TVT-6000 LCTV have been investigated. Mueller matrices of multiple ray paths through the TVT-6000 were measured for a single (typical) pixel, and through several pixels, using an imaging polarimeter. The TVT-6000 was characterized as a function of applied voltage and angle of incidence. From the Mueller matrices, the spatially dependent retardance, diattenuation, and depolarization are calculated and displayed as topographic maps. In another set of measurements, the LCTV is illuminated with a plane wave, and the spatial distribution of polarization in the Far Field Diffraction Pattern is measured in Mueller matrix form.
