Polarization Exercise

1. A randomly-polarized light with spot diameter of 1 mm is incident at the angle of 45 degree

onto a plane-parallel plate of birefringent material (no = 1.658; ne = 1.486) in air. The optical

axis of the crystal is perpendicular to the plane of incidence. Find the minimal thickness of

the plate is to have the ordinary and extraordinary light beams output from the plate

separated (not overlapping).

degree between their transmission axes. Calculate the output power.

3. A circularly polarized light with a wavelength of 600 nm, is normally incident on a crystal

retarder plate (no = 1.623 and ne = 1.656) with the optical axis, parallel to the plate faces,

with thickness 4.55 µm. Determine the polarization state of the emerging light.

4. A natural-light beam with intensity Ii passes through a system consisting of a polarizer P and

a quarter-wave plate. The light is then reflected by the mirror M and passes through the

plate and the polarizer in the opposite direction. Determine the intensity I2 of the outgoing

light as a function of the angle 𝛼 between the transmission axis of the polarizer P and the

optical axis of the plate O–O’.

5. Two linearly polarized beams with intensities 1 mW/mm2 and 2.25 mW/mm2 have an angle

of 30 degree between their directions of propagation. Find the interference fringes contrast

value in their area of overlap.

6. Birefringent filters are known for long time, however lately they gained high practical

importance due to the possibility of tuning them by a small voltage when made from liquid

crystals. Consider a filter that consists of a set of N birefringent crystal or plates each

between parallel polarizers oriented such that the polarizer axis makes an angle of 45o to

the optic axis. In other words, all the plates are oriented at an azimuth angle of 45o. The

plate thicknesses are in geometric progression, that is, d, 2d, 4d …The difference between

the fast and slow axis refractive indices is ∆𝑛

a) Find the Jones matrix of the arrangement

b) Show that the transmissivity (or the transfer function) of the arrangement is given by:

2

𝑁

sin(2𝑁−1 Γ) 2𝜋𝑑Δ𝑛

𝑇 = ∏ 𝑐𝑜𝑠 2 (2𝑗−2 Γ) = ( ) ; Γ=

Γ 𝜆

𝑗=1 2𝑁 𝑠𝑖𝑛 (2)

c) If the thinnest plate thickness d is equal to 𝑚𝜆/Δ𝑛, where 𝑚 is a positive integer, show

that the transfer function gives peak wavelengths, full width at half maximum (FWHM)

and free spectral range (FSR, which is the separation between the peak wavelengths)

are given by:

𝜆𝑝𝑒𝑎𝑘 = 𝐹𝑊𝐻𝑀 = 𝐹𝑆𝑅 =

𝑚 2𝑁 𝑚 𝑚+1

d) If the crystal gives Δ𝑛 = 10−3, design the filter (i.e. find m and N) such that it gives

𝜆𝑝𝑒𝑎𝑘 = 900 𝑛𝑚 and the 𝐹𝑊𝐻𝑀 ≤ 30 𝑛𝑚.

e) For your design find the FWHM, the FSR and the rejection ratio of the filter (ratio

between the transmission peak and the small ripples)

7. Complete the following sentences showing your detailed steps to reach the answer:

a) A half-wave plate is operating at 707 nm wavelength and has extraordinary and

ordinary refractive indices of 1.541 and 1.549. The plate thickness is …… µm.

b) An incident light is circularly polarized and has intensity 100 mW/cm2. The

output intensity of the light beam passed through two linear polarizers with angle

45 deg between the transmission axes is …… (Ignore the reflection of light from

the linear polarizer faces)

c) Linearly polarized light with polarization azimuth = 30 deg is incident at the

Brewster angle on a glass plane-parallel plate with n2 = 1.5 in air (n1 = n3 = 1.0)

when. The energy transmission coefficient is ……
