Abstract
An intercomparison of optical disc birefringence measurements using commercial instrumentation found in manufacturing settings showed significant measurement variation. We discuss possible sources of variation in these measurements, including changes in disc properties and coherence effects. We describe specific measurement errors related to deviations from circular input polarization in one class of polarimetric instruments. Efforts to mitigate measurement errors, such as the development of calibration artifacts, are discussed.
