Abstract

This paper presents a theoretical and experimental measurement of the effect of wavelength on birefringence in polycarbonate substrates, in the range from 360 to 860 nm, which covers the blue, red and infrared recording range. Results show that as the measurement wavelength increases, the birefringence generally decreases.
