Abstract

The objective of this paper is to evaluate four types of polarizers in terms of three criteria: (1) their contrast ration, (2) the uniformity of their contrast ratios across 20 mm apertures, and (3) the uniformity of their transmission axis orientations across 20 mm apertures. The types of polarizers evaluated are calcite Glan-Thompson polarizers, polarizing beam splitters, silver glass polarizers, and stretched polymer polarizers. The measurements are performed with a rotating polarizer imaging polarimeter.
