As for polarized-interferometric techniques of researches in photoelastic laboratory of MCEI by V.V.Kuibyshev, the search of this problem solution is being carried out in following main directions:
- automatization of measuring the birefringent parameters by the polarized-optical set-ups;
- automatization of processign of fixed interferograms;
- computer aided processing of experimental data.
In general, there are two methods of measurements in polarization interferometry; the real time measurements in points on the model or a posterior field measurements on interferograms fixed on photoregistrator.
