Paper Abstract

Areal maps of optical retardance are rapidly generated for flat, transmissive optics using a new commercial birefringence mapper. The versatility and capabilities of the mapper are evaluated for a series of parts that include laser glass samples, laser damaged glass, liquid crystal devices, birefringent crystals, and polymers. Potential users may be trained to use the instrument in less than one hour.
