Quarter-wave Plate

Description of a quarter-wave plate

Use of a quarter-wave plate to change the state of polarization of light, e.g., from linear to elliptical (or to circular) polarization

Demonstration that there is no change in the state of polarization when propagating along either principal axis of the quarter-wave plate
