Abstract
A novel birefringence measurement with double rotating polarization elements is proposed. This system includes rotating components of linear polarizer and quarter-wave plate with different rotating speeds. The birefringence is calculated by analyzing the Fourier components for rotation frequency in a detected signal. In this paper, the basic principle and experimental results of the birefringence measurement are described.
