This paper presents the achromatization of Savart Polariscope to decrease the lateral-shear dispersion in the lateral displacement. The achromatic Savart Polariscope can be made from two different birefringent crystal materials. The achromatic model for the choices of material is presented. The achievements and performances of different achromatic Savart Polariscopes are demonstrated with numerical simulations and ray tracing program. The chromatic variation in lateral displacement can be reduced by an order of magnitude across the spectral range 0.4μm to 0.9μm.
