Abstract

We propose and discuss an optical heterodyne technique to measure the phase retardation of a wave plate. The accuracy of this measurement technique in determining the optical path difference of a quarter-wave plate is of the order of 0.1 nm, thus exceeding the accuracy of other measurement techniques.
