Abstract
The application of the Senarmont compensator setup for measuring of elliptically birefringent media properties is presented. The measurement procedure is carried out in two steps. In the first one, the medium is treated as a linearly birefringent, while, after a little modification of the measurement setup, is treated as a circularly one. Formulae for the phase shift introduced by the medium and the ellipticity angle of the first eigenvector of the medium are presented, also in the case when the quartenvave plate does not introduce the phase shift that is equal exactly 90°.
