Somethings to think about for polarization of light

  1. Nov 4, 2007 #1
    It is physically challenging to manufacture a waveplate with a thickness precisely corresponding to a path difference of lambda/2. First, estimate the typical thickness (hint: consider the difference in 'n' for the slow and fast axes). Search and learn how manufacturers circumvent this problem.
