Abstract
A method used for measurement of the reflection-induced retardance of the Fresnel employing two polaroids is reported. The concept we propose is based on optimized Fresnel rhombs, using the total internal reflection phenomenon. The total internal reflection induces phase retardance between the polarization components of the incident light. The theoretical analysis of the principle is given taking Stokes–Mueller formalism as a mathematical tool. An application example of the method is shown; this method has advantages such as easy procurement of the optical devices needed and simplicity of operation.
