Abstract
A confocal microscopic setup with a pair of birefringent lenses having their crystal axes crossed is used to measure birefringence of thin samples. The method can be used to measure phase down to the order of λ/10. The fast and slow axes of the object also can be identified. The principle of the method along with the experimental setup is described. Some first-order experimental results are also presented.
