Paper Abstract

In many optical applications of anisotropic crystals birefringence dispersion (BD) is at least so important as birefringence spatial inhomogeneity itself. In this work a new technique of 2D mapping of parameters related to BD in plane-parallel wafers of optical materials is reported. A computer-controlled imaging spectro-polarimeter is used for recording the wafers' images for consecutively varying wavelengths. Examples of practical measurements carried out on undoped and Cu-doped LiNbO3 are presented.
