Paper Abstract

In the present work some results of modulation peculiarities measurements of linearly polarized laser beam are obtained. The laser beam with polarization under 45 degree(s) angle to the optical axis of quartz passed through quartz crystal set between two crossed polarizers. The intensity of laser beam after passing through the polarizer-crystal-analyzer system was measured in dependence of the turn angle of crystal. It is determined that every pair of parallel faces of quartz cube has its individual modulation intensity picture. Experimentally conditions do not influence the whole picture. It is supposed that different kinds of modulation can be connected with certain crystallographic directions.
