Measuring the performance of optical retarders and polarizers after purchase is important to verify that installation will not degrade system performance. Baur describes which parameters are important to measure, how they can affect performance, and how they can be measured to ensure optimal system performance. He also describes equipment and methods that nonspecialized end users can use to measure the performance of components for polarimetry and polarization control.
