Detail of interferometer showing location of polarizers and waveplates.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Equal intensity contours in one quadrant of the field of view of the interferometer in Fig. 1 using a first order mica quarter waveplate in test arm (28 μm thick at 6328 Å). H indicates intensity maxima and L minima; the dashed contours are located at the 50% intensity points.
