Abstract

We use Mueller matrix polarimetry to measure Berry phase through three mirror reflectors. Rotation of linear polarization state rotation due to Berry phase introduces a phase difference between left circular and right circular polarized components which is confirmed and also the achromatic nature of Berry phase is verified over spectral range of 500-800 nm. An adjustment on mirror rotation is performed to change propagation vectors and the linearity of optical rotation with respect to the rotation angle of mirror across the visible to near infra-red spectral band is also shown.
