Abstract:
The design and implementation details of an advanced type of optical measurement device are presented (the Ultimate Ellipsometer). Design and functional details of its major components and subcomponents are described. A list of its optical measurement capabilities (polarization rotation and ellipticity, grating diffraction order efficiencies and polarization state measurements, magneto-optic, and electro-optic measurements) is presented, along with various measurement results. In addition, optical, magneto-optical, and electro-optical characterization results of sol-gel derived bismuth doped dysprosium iron garnet (B.I.G.), lead zirconate titanate (PZT), and lead lanthanum zirconate titanate (PLZT) thin films are presented.
