Question: in the birefringent material calcite caco3 the refractive indices...

Question details

In the birefringent material calcite (CaCO3 ) the refractive indices of the two principal axes are n1 = 1,658 and n2 = 1,486 respectively. A linear polarized laser beam is coupled into the crystal under an angle of 45 degree relative to the two principal axes.

                                                                                                                                                                               

Calculate the minimum thickness of the crystal, which is necessary to yield a circular polarized beam leaving the crystal!
