Abstract

The polarization of extreme uv light provided by a normal incidence monochromator used with synchrotron radiation from the 6-GeV electron synchrotron DESY has been measured. The measured polarization increases from 82% at 500 Å to 87% at 1000 Å, and is in excellent agreement with the calculated polarization of the light incident upon the monochromator grating. A reflecting polarimeter consisting of a polarizer and an analyzer each made of four gold mirrors has been used in the measurement.
