Abstract
High degrees of linear polarization of laser radiation and sensitivity to its variation are achieved by applying frequency converters using nonlinear crystals as polarizers and analyzers. The factors leading to distortion of linear polarization of light in such devices are identified. A KD*P polarimeter with extinction ratio of 5 (DOT) 10-9 is developed on the basis of a quasi-CW picosecond YAG laser.
