Abstract

We derive an extended Jones matrix method to treat the transmission of light through birefringent networks, where the incident angle of light and the optical axis of the birefringent media are arbitrary. As an example, we employ the method to analyze the leakage problem of a twisted nematic liquid-crystal display and to suggest its possible solutions. A generalization of the method covers all dielectric media, including uniaxial and biaxial crystals and also gyrotropic materials that exhibit optical rotation and Faraday rotation.
