Abstract

The birefringence of the atmosphere under the onset of a wind speed gradient has been studied near flat ground. Some characteristics and performances of the ellipsometer are given. The setup of the experiment is described; the results show that a birefringent effect is measurable. The numerical value of β = Δn/G is in good agreement with a previous experiment, but to an improved accuracy.
