The AxoStep is the world’s first imaging Müller Matrix microscope.  The system creates a complete 2D map of all possible polarization properties in ranges from 9 mm x 7 mm to 40 µm x 30 µm. It can measure the complete Müller matrix of e.g. 80,000 measuring points in only 15 seconds.

Application examples
  • LCD panels (cell gap, pre tilt)
  • LCD foils (variation between single pixels, micro defects)
  • Microoptical components (waveplates with patterns, polarization splitters, etc.)
  • 3D display components (3D glasses, retarder elements, LC lenses)
  • Biological samples (e.g. collagen alignment in tissue)
  • Stress analysis (birefringence on lenses and Windows)
  • Fiber optics (PMD measurement, PM fiber alignment)

All measurements can be carried out

  • about wavelength
  • via coupling angle
  • about X/Y
  • about temperature
  • in transmission or reflection
  • in the laboratory or in the production line
