Abstract

The effect on the state of polarization of light incident nonnormally onto KD*P in the biaxial state is described. The retardation and preferred planes of vibration are calculated as functions of the incident angles. These results are applied to an optical system where the KD*P is used as a polarization rotator. The intensity of the light emerging from the optical system indicates the angular limits of the crystal. The computed results are compared with experimentally measured values.
