Abstract

The ultraviolet properties of films that have useful polarizing properties at wavelengths as short as 215 mμ are reported. Large-diameter films may be obtained, and the material is not bleached by intense ultraviolet radiation. The use of stretched polyvinyl alcohol and cleaved mica sheets as retardation plates is reviewed.
