Paper Abstract

Trains of polarizers and retarder elements can be devised to produce nearly any desired color. This paper is concerned with the values of retardation which will produce the largest color contrast between the two positions of parallel and crossed polarizers. The specific systems investigated consist of the case of a retarder between two polarizers and the case of three polarizers and two retarders.
