Abstract

Applications ®t Mathematica for Investigation of the Polarisation Role in Fiber Optic Interferometers Leszek R. Jaroszewicz Institute of Applied Physics, Military University of Technology, Kaliskiego 2, Warsaw, PL-01 489, Poland, jarosz@wat.waw.pl Abstract The possibility of visualization and animation by Mathematica of polarization influence on fiber optic elements and interferometer work is presented. The above description based on an application of the Jones' matrix calculus for any fiber optic elements and op- tical part of interferometer systems. The simple method to study the differences and simi- larities in a description of particular group of interferometers by Mathematica is shown. The analysis of the possibilities of a reduction of polarisation effect on particular fiber op- tic elements and interferometers is the main advantage of'this Mathematica application. 1 Introduction The correct design and manufacturing of fiber optic phase sensor requires a precise knowledge concerni
