Abstract

The basic principle of the static polarization wind imaging interferometer (SPWII) is expounded in this paper. By using trigonometric function and complex amplitude methods, the complex vibration amplitude of each polarization device with deviation from its ideal direction is calculated. The variations of the fringe visibility and optical throughput with deviation angles are given analytically and simulated numerically. According to the design parameters of the SPWII, the air-equivalent length L is equal to 16.14 cm and the total transmissivity is greater than 0.4. When the polarization directions of each polarization device are all in the ideal directions, the total optical throughput can be maintained at about 16.4% of the incident optical intensity. When the polarization directions of each polarization device are all 2° deviated from the ideal positions, the total optical throughput is decreased by 0.08%. This work would be useful for the realization and data processing of the SPWII.
