Abstract

An accurate measurement method of the polarized light′s phase retardation based on the crystal wedge is introduced, and is applied to measure the phase retardation′s temperature dependence of the zero- and multiple-order quartz wave plates. The measured results are insensitive to the power fluctuation of the light source, and the accuracy of the phase measurement can reach 0.05°. Compared to the traditional phase measurement, there is no adjustment of any optical components during the crystal wedge′s experiments, the on-line phase detection can be realized. This method can be used at the phase retardation measurement of any optical components, or at the various optical wavelengths.
