Paper Abstract

Present studies report step by step analysis, theoretical as well as experimental along with simulations, of evaluating the output Jones matrix for different experimental configurations consisting of combination of polarizers and waveplates at different orientations using Jones calculus. This development is an attempt to ease the polarization studies using Jones calculus through sensors, data acquisition and analysis tools. The studies provide an extensive laboratory exercise through hands-on as well as computer simulations to the undergraduate students to comprehend various concepts related to polarization.
