  • Eigen State Generator Set

For Polarimeter Calibration
FREDERICK, Colo., June 24 -- Meadowlark Optics' eigen state generator set is an accessory that allows the LCPM-3000 polarimeter to achieve the greatest accuracy for the user's optical setup. The generator set provides the six polarization states necessary to calibrate the polarimeter: linear polarized light at angles of 0 degrees, 90 degrees, +45 degrees and -45 degrees, as well as circular right-handed and circular left-handed polarized light. These states are created by using a precision dichroic linear polarizer in a black housing and a precision quarter wave plate in a blue housing. The housings are CNC machined and use a quasikinematic scheme to mate to a v-groove and a flat groove in a stainless steel platform. A magnet provides the force to allow accurate and repeatable matings. Large arrows on the housing indicate the polarization axis of the polarizer and the fast axis of the wave plate for ease of use.

A polariscope with a half-shade device and an angular scale generally attached to the analyzer. It is used to measure the rotation of the plane of polarization by materials placed within it. A saccharimeter, used to detect sucrose concentration, is an example of a polarimeter.
