Wire grid polarizers (WGP), are sub-wavelength gratings with applications in display projection
system due to their compact size, wide field of view and long-term stability. Measurement and testing
of these structures are important to optimize their use. This is done by first measuring the Mueller
Matrix of the WGP using a Mueller Matrix Polarimeter. Next the Finite Difference Time Domain
(FDTD) method is used to simulate a similar Mueller matrix thus providing the period and step height
of the WGP. This approach may lead to more generic determination of sub-wavelength structures
including diffractive optical structures.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
