Paper Abstract

The paper presents of review of some methods for study optical properties of crystals possessing the optical activity, the birefringence and the dichroism simultaneously which were elaborated by the authors during the last several years. Two main approaches are considered: one making use of the measurement of the azimuth of transmitted light as a function of the incident light azimuth, the other one is based on the measurement of the light intensity transmitted through the sample placed between two polarizers. The intensity change is measured and analyzed depending on the rotation angle of the sample with crossed and parallel polarizers. The theoretical basis of this approach for the general case of nonorthogonal eigen waves is developed. The consideration is based on Muller matrix formalism.
