Paper Abstract

In 1956 S. Pancharatnam [1] showed that a phase is introduced between two light beams of different polarization P1 and P2 after they have passed through the same analyzer P. Pancharatnam's phase γ is proportional to the excess Ω(P1, P2, P) of the spherical triangle P1, P2, P on the Poincaré-sphere...
