Schematic representation of a dual-beam polarimeter: an initial light ray with two polarization states (shown in blue and red) passes through a half-wave plate (HWP) and a Wollaston prism (WP) that splits it into two light beams with perpendicular polarization states. The optical axis in each of the two crystals of the WP is also shown.
