Abstract
Theoretical studies on Stokes polarimeter made of one twisted nematic crystal (TNLC) and one linear polarizer were carried out. Approaching the description of the TNLC theoretically, a model of Stokes polarimeter was created and its behavior was investigated in a numerical way. The minimization criterion of the condition number of the matrix describing the setup’s behavior was applied leading to the conclusion concerning the extension of the introduced by TNLC phase difference range up to 4π.
