Paper Abstract

The present work shows a simple polariscopic module which enables measurements of optical properties of objects with the micrometer order dimensions. The main part of this setup consists of polarizing elements - polarizers and Wollaston prisms. The waves generating the vortex lattice leaving the polariscopic module are inclined to each other and they constitute a four-point scanning system in the focal plane of the objective. Having measured the lattice shift or/and deformation, one can determine object's different properties. The setup can work in both the transmission and reflection mode. In the paper the theoretical background, numerical simulations and experimental results are presented.
