Paper Abstract

In this work we present a method for the determination of the Jones matrix of a liquid crystal display (LCD), independent of the knowledge of the orientation of the liquid crystal director. The method is based on the measurement of the LCD transmittance for various polarization configurations. Once the Jones matrix has been determined, it is demonstrated to predict with high accuracy the transmission of the LCD for other polarization configurations.
