Abstract

We present some applications of the optical vortex birefringence compensator, based on the C polarization type singularities generated using two Wollaston compensators. The theory and experimental results of birefringent media properties measurements are presented. The possibility of the simultaneous measurement of both the azimuth angle and the phase retardance has been analyzed and experimentally verified.
