Practical applications of bulk and layered birefringent media are considered in the final part separate chapters are devoted to linear polarizers phase retarders and birefringent filters traditional bulk media polarizing elements are included and compared with thin film designs. This book describes the propagation of light in biaxial media the properties of biaxial thin films and applications such as birefringent filters for tuning the wavelength of dye lasersa novel feature of the first part is the parallel treatment of stokes jones and berreman matrix formalisms in a chapter by chapter development of wave equations basis vectors transfer matrices reflection .

Form birefringence is refractive anisotropy due to shape as one example a system of parallel layers is asymmetric in a three dimensional sense and exhibits uniaxial form birefringence birefringent thin films and polarizing elements introduction guided waves birefringent thin films and polarizing elements front matter . Birefringent thin films and polarizing elements polarized light microscopy microscopyu polarized light is a contrast enhancing technique that improves the quality of the image obtained with birefringent
