Abstract
Spatial inhomogeneity of the phase different in the birefringent plates of YAlO3 and LiNbO3 crystals with the dimensions ranging from 7 X 8 to 20 X 20 mm2 are measured. A considerable eigenwave ellipticity k approximately 0.001 is revealed in the samples doped with neodymium, which can be explained by lowering symmetry of those crystals. The studies for the spatial optical inhomogeneities are performed with the imaging polarimeter which utilizes computer registration and processing of images. The apparatus have been used for the measurement of spatial distribution of the optical anisotropy parameters characterizing several single crystals. The results obtained agree well with the data derived from the automated polarimeter which works according to a single-ray scheme and utilizes usual single-element photodetector.
