Abstract

Spectro-polarimeteric observations in the vacuum-ultraviolet (VUV) region are expected to be developed as a new astrophysics diagnostic tool for investigating space plasmas with temperatures of >104K. Precise measurements of the difference in the extraordinary and ordinary refractive indices are required for developing accurate polarimeters, but reliable information on the birefringence in the VUV range is difficult to obtain. We have measured the birefringence of magnesium fluoride (MgF2) with an accuracy of better than ±4×105 around the hydrogen Lyman-α line (121.57 nm). We show that MgF2 can be applied practically as a half-waveplate for the chromospheric Lyman-alpha spectro-polarimeter (CLASP) sounding rocket experiment and that the developed measurement method can be easily applied to other VUV birefringent materials at other wavelengths.

(a) Amplitudes of a waveplate with a thickness difference of Δd=|d1d2|=15.755μm sampled in wavelength steps of 0.02 nm and 0.05 nm. The two dotted lines indicate the wavelength range of Lyman-α ±0.5nm. (b) Amplitudes of a waveplate with Δd=15.755μm around the wavelength with δ=π (minimum amplitude). The thin solid line indicates a quadratic fit of the data with 0.02 nm sampling, and the thick dashed line is that with 0.05 nm sampling. The two vertical lines indicate the wavelength positions where the amplitude becomes a minimum (the dashed line is for the 0.05 nm sampling and solid line that for 0.02 nm sampling).

(a) Maximum V/I of the beam passing through a waveplate with a misalignment of ψ between the principle axes of the two MgF2 plates for various phase retardations of the first MgF2 plate. (b) Difference from 180° in the phase retardation of a waveplate with a misalignment of ψ between the principle axes of two MgF2 plates. The dashed line indicates ψ=3arcmin.
