Unpolarized light passes through a linear polarizer with TA at 50° from the vertical. (i) What is the polarization of the emerging light if it passes through a QWP with SA horizontal? Use Jones Matrices to show that the light emerging from the QWP is elliptically polarized. (ii) Determine the angle of inclination of its major axis relative to the horizontal direction, the ratio of its major to minor axes and its sense of rotation. (iii) If the light emerging from the QWP goes through a HWP with SA at 45∘ with the vertical, how will the nature of the elliptically polarized change?
