Figures (2)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Theoretical variation of Φ=(Kp+Ks−2)/2 (vertical scale, degrees) with angle of incidence i (horizontal scale, degrees). Recall that Δe≅Δa+Φ cosθ×sinΔa, hence, |Δe−Δa| is generally much smaller than Φ. The numbering of the curves specifies the index of refraction of the fluid as follows: (1) n=1.45; (2) n==1.48216; (3) n=1.55; (4) n=1.60; (5) n=ω=1.64869; (6) n=1.70. The parameters for the calcite plate were taken as d=120λ0, =1.48216 (extraordinary refractive index) and ω=1.64869 (ordinary refractive index).

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Theoretical variation of the geometrical-optics value of phase difference Δa (degrees) vs angle of incidence i (degrees). The index of the surrounding medium is specified by the curve numbers similar to Fig. 1. For comparison, curve 0 refers to n=1, or an air environment. The parameters for the calcite plate are the same as for Fig. 1.
