Abstract

A method of polarization ray tracing for calculating the instrumental polarization function of an optical system using the Jones calculus is presented. Polarization ray tracing supplements the equations of ray tracing to include amplitude, phase, polarization and retardance effects of thin films, polarization elements and polarizing materials. Results of a polarization ray trace analysis of a Cassegrain telescope are presented.
