Characterizing dielectric tensors with biaxial ellipsometry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Dielectric tensors of liquid crystal polymer retarder films are determined by measuring the sample with an angle-of-incidence Mueller matrix imaging polarimeter. An optimization routine finds the dielectric tensor that best fits the Mueller matrix data.
