Experimental realization of the weak value of polarization anisotropy: a new concept of "weak value polarimeter''

24 Feb 2020 Modak Niladri S Athira B Singh Ankit Kumar Ghosh Nirmalya

Using the concept of weak measurements in classical optics, we introduce a new polarimetry tool that is capable of amplifying and quantifying extremely small sample polarization anisotropy effects, namely, linear and circular diattenuation and retardance. The approach is founded on interferometric realization of the weak value of polarization observable and is experimentally obtained by near destructive interference of polarized light in a Mach-Zehnder interferometer in the presence of a weak polarization anisotropy effect...
