Author Affiliations +
Experimental spectropolarimeter device for simultaneous determination of birefringence, dichroism and parameters of an optical activity of crystals is designed and is made. The given device can be utilized for research of real structure of crystals, of the control both quality crystals also optical polarization elements of anisotropic optics (phase plate, polarization prisms). For determination of optical parameters of crystal plates the measurement of light intensity transmitted through a sample disposed between arbitrary oriented polarizer and analyzer is carried out. Control of device and processing of outcomes of experiment implement with the help of the designed software package. For an estimation of capabilities of the given device the measurements optically active crystal (quartz), absorptive crystal (ruby, mica), phase plates are conducted.
