Abstract

Polarization and phase shifts of Lyman-alpha flux reflected from Al, Al2O3, ZnS, MgF2, and SiO films were measured. A circular polarizer having a 5° angle of acceptance and 12% transmittance was constructed using Al2O3 and Al mirrors. The amount of flux in the desired state of circular polarization was between 83% and 90%.
