Homework 8 with Solutions (1) Using Stokes Vectors and Müller Matrices calculate the output polarization for an input polarzation of 45 o after the following for elements in series i. Polarizer at 60 0 ii. Polarizer at 45 o iii. λ / 2 plate oriented with slow axis at 0 o iv. λ / 4 plate oriented with slow axis at 45 o First the intuitive solution: First element: Changes polarization to 60 Second element: Changes polarization back to 45 Third element: Changes polarization to –45 Fourth element: does not do anything Input Polarization: 1 0 1 0 " # $ $ $ % & After first element: cos15 0 ( ) 2 1 " 0.5 3 2 0 # $ % % % & ( ( ( After second element cos15 0 ( ) 4 1 0 1 0 " # $ $ $ % & After third element cos15 0 ( ) 4 1 0 " 1 0 # $ % % % & ( ( (
