Abstract

Some polarization properties of photopolymers are determined. Photopolymers on a Mylar substrate alter an incoming linearly polarized laser beam to an elliptical polarization. The extinction ratio is of the order of 10:1 for the samples tested. Polarization effects were found to change over different regions of each sample by approximately ±10%. The Mylar substrate alone was found to distort the incoming polarization to a comparable degree.
