Abstract

A new and simple way for a microscope to make an interferogram is proposed and demonstrated. This method is based on the polarization interferometry of the changing polarizability of light by a half-mirror using a laser as the light source. It is convenient to use a microscope to observe concentration gradients and phase objects, such as studies of crystal growth.
