Figures (3)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Wood anomaly top, the light distribution. Bottom, the equal chromatic order fringes if the polarizer, the Babinet, and the analyzer are on the entrance slit. Middle, the fringes when the phase delay of the grating is added to those of the Babinet (analyzer over the spectrum, Babinet, and polarizer at the entrance slit).

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Fringes of equal chromatic order with polarizer and Babinet at the entrance slit and the analyzer on the spectrum for varying incidence angle. Top, the fringes are bent downward in the anomaly. Middle, the fringe system is broken. Bottom, each fringe is bent upward connecting with the next one.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Different positions of the pole and the zero of the diffracted field in the complex λ plane. Physically only the real axis is significant. The phase of the diffracted field is given approximately by the angle between the vectors λ0 and λp. (a), (b), and (c) correspond to top, center, and bottom of Fig. 2, respectively.
