Paper Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a novel depolarizer, which is made of optical activity crystal. The equation of the degree of polarization is derived by using transfer matrix. The relationship of the degree of polarization and spectrum shape, thickness of the crystal is discussed. To demonstrate the analysis, we do some experiments using different kinds of crystals of different thickness. The results perfectly coincide with the analysis.
