Abstract

Corner cube retroreflectors are geometrically simple devices which have fascinating optical properties. Photographs of corner cube retroreflectors using a polarimeter and collimated laser illumination have verified their polarization properties. The Jones calculus and Pauli spin matrix coefficients have been utilized to classify the observed results.
