Paper Abstract

According to the requirement of a wide-viewing-angle retroreflector (WVAR) that the max divergence angle cannot exceed 9 mrad, we have made an optimal design of WVAR with radius of 30 mm (n=1.95375@ wavelength of 632.8 nm) to be used to be the reference light in polarization interferometry. Therefore, it is particularly important to calculate its polarization properties accurately. We have applied the three-dimensional (3D) coherency polarization calculus to analyze the designed WVAR, and the theoretical results are in agreement with the simulation results by the FRED software. Finally, it can be concluded that the designed WVAR has a very good ability of polarization-maintaining.
