Abstract

Reusch and Sohncke have examined the properties of a system containing a large number <i>n</i> of identical retardation plates, each of which is rotated with respect to the one preceding it through the angle ω. The product of <i>n</i> and ω must be equal to µπ, where µ is an integer. Under certain conditions this system is optically equivalent to a simple rotator. This system, which would be very difficult to examine by ordinary methods, is given a treatment which is completely rigorous and which is more general than any given heretofore.
