Abstract

This paper shows that large angles of separation of rays with orthogonal polarizations can be achieved by deflecting the extraordinary ray to a side face of a crystal. When the rays are normally incident on the prism, the separation angle equals 40° for HgS, 18° for TeO2, and 10° for LiNbO3. As the angle of incidence of the rays on the prism varies, the separation angle can vary within the limits 0-120°. © 2003 Optical Society of America
